Missa Diligam te Domine a12 by Valentini
May 11 @ 10:00 am - May 12 @ 5:00 pm£30 – £40
We welcome back Philip Thorby for this two day Workshop for voices and Instruments. He has again uncovered a masterpiece for us with the Missa Diligam te Domine a 12 by Giovanni Valentini. Published in Venice in 1621, this is a spectacular composition which in many ways reminds us of Monteverdi and Gabrieli, but also has its own special qualities.
Valentini was an Italian composer, poet and keyboard virtuoso overshadowed in history by his contemporaries Monteverdi and Sch?tz and his compositions are now unjustifiably neglected. He was probably born in Venice and was reported to have been a pupil of Giovanni Gabrieli.
For this workshop we will need many voices and a variety of instruments for doubling or replacing vocal parts. These can include cornets, sackbuts, curtals, recorders, viols and continuo, including lutes.
Please download the leaflet for more details and the timetable for the day.
