Music for Galway & Galway 2020 present

Abendmusik: Over the Alps

in association with Resurgam and Galway Early Music Festival


Resurgam | English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble | Mark Duley director


Johann Rosenmüller (1619-1684), Vespers:

Dixit Dominus

Laudate pueri Dominum

Seán Doherty: Hail! Gladdening Light – New commission, World Premiere

Laetatus sum


In his lifetime, Rosenmüller was considered one of Europe’s greatest and most well-travelled musicians, and a key figure in bringing Italian musical ideas to Germany. Thus his music looks both ways across the Alps: grandiloquent Venetian splendour meeting Teutonic contrapuntal discipline. Resurgam brings the colourful and virtuosic beauty of his concerted vocal music to Ireland for the first time, with a collation of Latin psalm-concerti, each a mini-cantata. The splendidly sonorous C minor Magnificat in eight parts caps a Vespers setting in the grand Venetian style. Seán Doherty’s new work, setting an ancient Vesper hymn, forms a contrast in the centre of the programme.

Due to the ever changing circumstances, ticket sales for this event are on hold until further notice.
