Download the concert programme

Motets by JS Bach and his family frame this programme of sublime German baroque works performed by the intimate forces of The Marian Consort. This is music of yearning and intense pathos to cleanse and uplift the soul. The heart of the programme is Heinrich Schütz’s astonishing Musikalische Exequien. Written at the height of the Thirty Years’ War, a conflict which decimated much of German-speaking Europe and left more than eight million people dead or displaced, this intensely human requiem combines the austere ritual of ancient chant with all of the colour, urgency and energy of baroque solo singing.

The Marian Consort’s performance has been supported with funding from The Marchus Trust
