Armonico Consort – A Baroque Christmas
December 9th 7:30 pm
Armonico Consort and Baroque Players
The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble
Directed by Christopher Monks
Few countries celebrate Christmas like the Germans do, although the city of Venice comes pretty close!
From the magisterial splendour of the Venetian baroque to the grand and huge scale works of the Michael Praetorius, one thing is certain – Christmas inspired composers to create the greatest tunes even back in the 16th & 17th Centuries! If you have never heard In Dulci Jubilo sung in 21 different parts, you must not miss this concert!
