Baroque Passion - music of heartbreak and healing

EX CATHEDRA Consort & Baroque Ensemble
Jeffrey Skidmore conductor

As we approach Easter,  this is a programme of sublime music by Bach, Kuhnau, Lotti, Monteverdi, Purcell and Scarlatti - sinuous, poignant and yearning for resolution. It is heartrending as Mary weeps at the foot of the cross in Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater but concludes with optimism in Bach’s glorious motet Komm, Jesu, komm.

We're delighted to give this concert at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square, London.

Programme includes:

JS Bach Prelude, Cello Suite No 1 in G (BWV 1007)
Purcell Hear my Prayer
Lotti Crucifixus
D Scarlatti Stabat mater
Kuhnau Tristis est anima mea
Monteverdi Plagas tuas
Monteverdi Maria, quid ploras?
JS Bach Komm, Jesu, komm (BWV 229)
