Phoenix Choir - A feast of Italian Baroque

Sat, 21/05/2016 - 4:00pm

Phoenix Choir musical director, Rowen Fox, has built a program around two Magnificats. Durante’s Magnificat, often attributed to his famous student Pergolesi, has an elegant simplicity which contrasts with the rich melodic and harmonic beauty of Vivaldi’s Magnificat. Canon Fodder sing the solos in these works and also perform three pieces on their own, by Palestrina, Marenzio and Pergolesi. To start the concert all join together for the majestic Lauda Jerusalem by Vivaldi, where they aim to capture the grandeur of the original setting for two antiphonal choirs.
