8 Feb 2020 19:30 - St. Andrew's Church

From renaissance polyphony to the romantics our concert brings you some of the most beautiful and inspiring church music from Italy.

Together with wonderful pieces by Monteverdi and Palestrina, we have work by the lesser known Lodovico Viadana, and religious works by
Rossini and Verdi, both better known for their operas. Verdi’s Ave Maria is an amazing and unexpected piece, written in response to a challenge.

If Schütz comes as a surprise in a concert of Italian music, he studied under Gabrieli and Monteverdi in Venice, and helped to introduce the
Italian baroque style to Germany.

We hope you will join us for this evening of glorious music.
