    Historia di Jephte

    Historia di Jephte, the tragic tale of a Jewish king who sacrificed his only daughter to the Lord after victory in war, is one of the most famous of Carissimi’s fourteen oratorios. On the other hand, Missa L’homme armé, an important parody Mass for triple choir based on the well-known Renaissance chanson melody, is one of the lesser-known works of Giacomo Carissimi, and its authorship has been attributed to him primarily on the basis of compositional parallels.

    Resurrection

    The music of Händel’s Roman period abounds with the originality, virtuosity, and boundless imagination of the young composer. Händel’s treatment of the stirring combat between good and evil exhibits the dramatic sweep of a master of Baroque opera. The work stands out for its extraordinarily colourful instrumentation, and it places great demands on all of the soloists and especially on the key roles of the Angel and Lucifer.

    Musikalische Exequien

    Henry II, Count of Reuss-Gera in Saxony, died in 1635. While still alive, he compiled suitable texts and asked the court composer in Dresden, Heinrich Schütz, to compose funeral music for him. Heinrich Schütz kept his word and created of a work of great contemplative power. Musikalische Exequien is supplemented by a thematically related motet from the collection Geistliche Chormusik and also by sacred madrigals from the collection Israels Brünnlein, which Schütz’s contemporary and compatriot Johann Hermann Schein composed in 1623.

    Arsilda

    Arsilda is one of Vivaldi’s most important stage works, and the composer frequently drew musical material from it for his later operas. It is therefore all the more surprising that this beautiful musical setting of a superb libretto by Domenico Lalli dealing with the eternal subject of deceit and pretence had to wait more then 300 years for its modern-era revival.

    Selva morale e spirituale

    In 1641 the maestro di cappella at St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Claudio Monteverdi, published an extensive collection of diverse sacred compositions with the title “Moral and Spiritual Forest”. These are a selection of sacred compositions from his twenty-seven years spent working in Venice. From among the collection’s very diverse contents, for this evening’s performance we have selected solo motets, ensembles, and more extensive choral compositions.

    Messiah

    It would be difficult to find a work in the oratorio repertoire that is as celebrated as Händel’s Messiah. Composed in just 24 days, the work was already exceptionally popular during Händel’s lifetime, and it became one of the cornerstones of the English oratorio tradition.
