MY HARP IS TUNED TO MOURNING

Lenten polyphony from Spain, Portugal and Italy

 

We open our 2020 season with a programme of sublime unaccompanied choral masterworks from Iberian lands, chief amongst which is Tomás Luis de Victoria's six-part Requiem, alongside Lobo's Versa est in luctum and stirring motets for Holy Week by the Évora Cathedral master Diogo Dias Melgás. Ranked with Palestrina as one of the greatest Renaissance composers, Victoria has enjoyed an unparalleled revival in recent times, his music never failing to captivate audiences with its rich harmonies and consummate polyphonic technique.

 

Victoria : Requiem (1605)

Alonso Lobo: Versa est in luctum

Melgás: Motets for Holy Week

Juana Inés de la Cruz - Madre, la de los primores

ROMAN HOLIDAY

A choral feast from eighteenth-century Rome 

 

Enjoy the majestic eighteenth-century choral delights of the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Rome, with a concert focussing on the music of Giovanni Battista Casali (1715-1792), maestro di cappella at San Giovanni in Laterano and a composer we have recently explored in a landmark project combining the latest scholarship with editing and transcription of rediscovered sacred works. Our Casali project will culminate in the recording of Costanzi Consort's exciting first CD!

 

G.B.Casali: Beatus vir, Laudate pueri, Scapulis suis, Ave Maria, Comedetis carnes

G.B.Casali: Responsories for Holy Week and Christmas 

G.B.Costanzi: Magnificat 

Maria Xaveria Perucona: Cessate tympana

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

Gavriil Lomakin: Cherubic Hymns

Sergei Rachmaninov: Bogoroditsye Dyevo
