Music of Celebration: Praetorius, Schütz and Gabrieli
Thaxted Parish Church of St John the Baptist
This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Michael Praetorius. Our programme will include the spectacular 16-part In dulci jubilo, as well as Giovanni Gabrieli’s In ecclesiis and Heinrich Schütz’s 4-choir setting of Psalm 150 – all scored for trumpets, trombones, oboes, sackbuts, cornets, strings and continuo as well as solo and choir singers. In addition, we are determined to celebrate the unlocking of music-making from coronavirus restrictions.
