"Gloria in Excelsis Deo!"
Early Music-making Day for Singers and Instrumentalists
with Philip Thorby
Broughton St Mary’s Church, Edinburgh
Saturday 17th November 2018, 10am - 4.30pm
A friendly day of early music-making for singers and players of recorders, viols and other strings, cornetti, sackbuts, curtals etc (at A440). Tenor and bass viols and large-size recorders particularly welcome!
The Gloria is often the most colourful and varied movement in sixteenth and seventeenth-century settings of the Mass. We will explore settings by two Venetian composers: a 16-part setting by Andrea Gabrieli and a 24-part setting by Annibale Padovano.
