Ex Cathedra Consort & Continuo
Jeffrey Skidmore conductor
Jephte makes a rash vow and sacrifices his only child, but not before she sings an agonisingly beautiful lament. St Peter denies Christ as the cock crows. This Lenten programme explores the beginnings of oratorio, and also includes glorious music by Monteverdi, Gesualdo and Anerio – whose publication Teatro armonico spirituale di madrigali lends the concert its name.
