The Gonzaga Band

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 Jamie Savan, director, cornet Faye Newton, soprano Richard Sweeney, theorbo Steven Devine, harpsichord, chamber organ Vespers à 4 Taking a creative approach to Monteverdi’s 1610 setting, and drawing on music by some of his Venetian contemporaries, this programme illustrates how large-scale church music can be transformed into devotional chamber music. The Gonzaga Band employs a range of historical techniques to reduce polychoral textures into ravishing duets with continuo accompaniment. The music is further transformed by scintillating improvised ornamentation. The concert will finish at approximately 9.15pm.
