CHRISTMAS IN ST PETERSBURG
Three centuries of Russian choral gems
Costanzi Consort explore their first Russian Christmas with a programme of deeply atmospheric choral works, moving through three centuries of tradition from the era of Peter the Great to the Russian Revolution of 1917. Much of the Russian seventeenth and eighteenth-century choral repertory is little known in the West, so this will be a rare chance for North Somerset concert-goers to be transported to the courtly opulence of the Imperial Chapel of the Tsars.
Vasily Titov: Byeznyevyestnaya Dyevo (Hymn to the Virgin)
Dimitry Bortynansky: Dostoyno yest, Choral Concertos
Giuseppe Sarti: Kyrie for double choir
