Glories of the Baroque
04/04/2014, 7:30 pm
Cardiff University Chamber Choir, John Hugh Thomas (conductor)
- Mondonville De Profundis
- Bach Christ lag in Todesbanden
- Vivaldi Nulla in mundo pax sincera
- Mondonville Dominus Regnavit
The Chamber Choir is delighted to return to Llandaff Cathedral to sing an exquisite programme of Baroque works. Mondonville, Bach and Vivaldi were contemporaries and all composed music to be performed in sacred spaces.
It may seem strange to us now, but after their deaths their music was to a greater or lesser degree forgotten. It was not until the early 19thcentury that Bach’s music was revived, Vivaldi’s in the 20th century and Mondonville not until the late 20th century.
Luckily, here we are in the 21st century and we can enjoy them all.
