In Dulci Jubilo: Praetorius & Schütz with Gabrieli Roar
7:00pm, 1 December 2022
Join Gabrieli Roar for ‘In Dulci Jubilo’, a Christmastide treat featuring the spectacular polychoral music of Michael Praetorius in belated celebration of the 400th anniversary of the great composer’s death. With more than 2,000 young singers participating in eight performances alongside Gabrieli’s world-class musicians, audiences and singers alike are sure to delight in this most exciting and flamboyant music of the early baroque.
Accompanying Gabrieli’s own consort and Roar young singers, nearly every conceivable type of late renaissance instrument will be on show – cornets, sackbuts, strings, dulcians, rackets, shawms, trumpets and all manner of keyboard instruments. This concert promised the sumptuous sounds and colours of the renaissance, alongside an inspiration and uplifting evening with young people placed centre stage.
Please note this concert will be filmed as part of a wider recording that will document the full ‘In Dulci Jubilo’ project.
