Music for Galway & Galway 2020 present
Abendmusik: Resounding Landscape
In association with Irish Baroque Orchestra
Live-streamed 7pm to 8.15pm
Resurgam | Irish Baroque Orchestra | Peter Whelan, director
Serendipitously, our next Abendmusik of the season falls on the feast day of St Cecilia, patron saint of musicians. Purcell’s ode is the first of several he wrote in honour of the Roman martyr, and the themes it celebrates are the inspiration for the programme’s new work, Rhona Clarke’s setting of Hildegard’s extraordinary O vis aeternitatis, a celebration of the divinity of the created order. Handel’s jubilant psalm setting Dixit Dominus concludes the programme.
This concert can be viewed live at 7pm, after which the recording will be available to watch until 7pm on Thursday 26th November.
E-Tickets will be available for purchase from Friday 13 November 2020
