Venetian music by Claudio Monteverdi, Alessandro Grandi, Dario Castello, Biagio Marini, Orazio Tarditi, Benedetto Re.  A celebration of the high-water mark of Venetian chamber music, prior to the plague of 1630-1 that was to wipe out the famed cornett virtuosi of the city for a generation.

Faye Newton: Soprano; Jamie Savan: Director/Cornetts; Helen Roberts: Cornett; Oliver Webber: Violin; Theresa Caudle: Violin/Cornett; Steven Devine: Organ/Harpsichord

Presented by the Georgian Concert Society

“If this really was the sound of music in Venice in 1629 it must have been a magical time…”
