Ex Cathedra: 'In a Strange Land'

Wed 26 April 2017, 7.30pm
Cadogan Hall
5, Sloane Terrace
London
SW1X 9DQ
United Kingdom

“How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?”

This well-known verse from Psalm 137, a hymn of captivity and longing for homeland and religious freedom, gives this programme its title and its theme. In a Strange Land explores man’s search for heaven and earth in the Old and the New World in the turbulence of the 16th and 17th centuries. There is music of religious conflict and of discovery from England, France, Holland, Spain – and from Mexico and Bolivia, the world of the Aztecs and Incas. The programme includes William Byrd’s exquisite Mass for Four Voices alongside gems by Gesualdo, Lobo, Tallis and Victoria, the lilting syncopation of Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla’s Missa Ego flos campi, and rhythmically-arresting music from the Latin American Baroque, full of evocative, indigenous imagery.

Sebastián de Vivanco: Music from Salamanca

Sat 29 April 2017, 7.30pm
Little St Mary's Church
Trumpington Street
Cambridge
CB2 1QG
United Kingdom

Sebastián de Vivanco (c1551-1622) is one of the greatest composers of the Spanish Golden Age, but is also one of its most neglected. Scholars and performers are only now starting to appreciate Vivanco’s worth: he was born in Ávila at the same time as the great Tomás Luis de Victoria whose stunning brilliance unfairly monopolised the attention of the musical world. Vivanco served as maestro at the cathedrals of Lérida, Segovia, Ávila and finally at Salamanca, at whose university he was appointed Professor of Music in 1603, a post he held until his death. It was at Salamanca that he published his music in three lavish volumes. In this event we turn to Vivanco’s more exuberant and outgoing side. The Missa Assumpsit Jesus is based on one of his own motets and is written for five voices, expanding in parts to seven voices. As well as some heartfelt and radiant motets, the choir will also give what is possibly the first modern performance of the brilliant Magnificat primi toni.
