The Jacobi Chorale and English Pro Musica Ensemble
7.30pm - 9.30pm at St Mary’s Church (£7)
Venice in the 17th and 18th centuries was the richest city on earth and its cultural capital. Many
composers emerged from Venice, however perhaps only a handful have had a lasting impact;
Claudio Montiverdi and the Gabrielis - Andrea and Giovanni. The Jacobi Chorale embraces early
music, and, with the English Pro Musica Ensemble, this year will perform “The Glory of Venice” as
the Festival’s opening concert. The concert will include excerpts from Monteverdi Vespers of 1610
and Vivaldi’s Gloria.
