Musikalisches Exequien

Saturday 23 March 2013, 7.30pm

The widely-travelled early baroque composer Heinrich Sch├╝tz, composed his beautiful cantata Musikalisches Exequien - divided into different movements for choir and soloists - for the funeral service of a German Count. In this performance we are joined by continuo players and the period brass quartet Il Nuovo Chiaroscuro. To complete the programme, we include movements from Schein's set of Lenten Lamentations Israelis Brunnlein, music by an earlier German composer Hieronymous Praetorius and J.S. Bach's two great motets Der Geist Hilft and Komm Jesu, Komm.
