The Glories of Baroque and Classical Rome: Cardiff University Chamber Choir

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
St Augustine's Church, Penarth

In the realm of church music, eighteenth-century Rome, a cosmopolitan cultural melting pot where the shock of the new was frequently juxtaposed with the ruins of antiquity, was worlds away from being the conservative musical backwater as portrayed in many standard music histories. During the reigns of several discerning and culturally sophisticated Popes the city played host to a wealth of artistic patronage as rival cardinals competed to employ the best maestri di cappella. After the turmoil of the Napoleonic wars the careers and compositions of many of these superb maestri quickly fell into obscurity. With this concert we pay homage chiefly to the mastery of Sebastiano Bolis (c.1750-1804), maestro to Cardinal Henry Benedict Stuart at San Lorenzo in Damaso, as well as his contemporary, Maria Rosa Coccia (1759-1833), the first woman to achieve the qualification of maestra di cappella of Rome.

Ym maes cerddoriaeth eglwysig y ddeunawfed ganrif roedd Rhufain yn ferw gosmopolitaidd lle gwelwyd cyffro datblygiadau newydd ochr yn ochr ag adfeilion o’r gorffennol pell. Yn ystod teyrnasiaeth sawl Pab dysgedig a diwylliannol bu’r ddinas yn ganolfan i noddwyr pwysig wrth i gardinaliaid gystadlu am wasanaeth y maestri di cappella mwyaf blaengar. Ar ôl cynnwrf y rhyfeloedd Napoleonaidd anghofiwyd am gyfraniad llawer o’r meistri hyn ac yn y cyngerdd hwn cawn gyfle i dalu wrogaeth i feistroldeb Sebastiano Bolis (c.1750-1804), maestro i’r Cardinal Henry Benedict Stuart yn S Lorenzo, Damaso, ynghyd ag i Maria Rosa Coccia (1759-1833), y ferch gyntaf i gael ei hapwyntio’n maestra di cappella yn Rhufain.
