A Baroque Holy Week

Saturday 25 March at 7.30pm

 

The Chapter House, York Minster by candlelight

Tickets: £12, £10 (concessions), £5 (students on the door)

 

We explore Baroque music from across Europe for Holy Week, from Italy Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, a powerful depiction of Mary standing at the cross of Jesus; from France Charpentier’s telling of Peter’s betrayal of Jesus in Le Reniement de St Pierre and Couperin’s Troisième Leçon de Ténèbres; and from England, Pelham Humfrey’s expressive verse anthem setting of Psalm 22, O Lord my God.
