A Schütz remembrance
Orlando Chamber Choir’s autumn concert falls on the eve of Remembrance Day and four days after the 350th anniversary of Heinrich Schütz’s death. What better repertoire to suit the mood than music about the melancholy of mortality, the promise of peace and salvation and the expectation of eternal life in glorious light – all composed by Schütz himself? The programme surrounds his exquisite large-scale Musikalische Exequien with more intimate single and double choir motets, showcasing the tonal warmth and radiance of Germany’s greatest late-Renaissance composer. Join us for an unforgettable memento mori concert with nunc est bibendum in the break!
