Giving New Voices to Old Music

Well-known, less well-known and not known at all … joyful Baroque choral music by Handel, Lalande [who?] and Torri [double who?] … it’s great music!

RBC Chamber Choir
Baroque Instrumental Ensemble
Conducted by Jeffrey Skidmore

Jeffrey Skidmore (pictured) conducts RBC’s flagship Chamber Choir in a spectacular programme of Baroque Psalm settings from Rome, Paris and Munich.

George Frideric Handel’s youthful and virtuosic concerto for voices Dixit Dominus is coupled with the equally brilliant and powerful setting of Cantate Domino by Michel-Richard de Lalande, Louis XIV’s favourite composer.

Containing an exquisite soprano récit and a soaring, climactic haute-contre doxology, this was Lalande’s most popular work.

The sparkling double-choir Versicle and Response Deus in adjutorium meum intende by Pietro Torri, the most celebrated composer at Maximillian II Emanuel’s Court in Munich, completes the programme in a new edition by M4C/RBC Doctoral Research student Gareth James.
