Early music concert to include three world premieres

I Faglione

A concert in the Chapel this Sunday will include the first public performance of new versions of three Renaissance works.

It will include Tallis's Spem in alium accompanied by instruments, Giovanni Gabrieli’s Magnificat for seven choirs as reconstructed by Hugh Keyte, and Striggio’s recently-discovered Mass in 40 parts.

The concert is part of the Cambridge Early Music Festival of the Voice, and will be performed by the award-winning vocal ensemble I Fagiolini. I Fagiolini specialises in contemporary and Renaissance music, and they will be accompanied by Cambridge singers and a superb team of Renaissance instrumentalists.

For more details and ticket information see the events section.

King's College Choir will also be taking part in the Festival of the Voice. It will be singing special Evensongs this Friday and Saturday, and special Matins and Evensong on Sunday. For details see the festival website.
