Ex Cathedra

Baroque Passion

Music of heartbreak and healing

Baroque Passion

EX CATHEDRA Consort & Continuo
Jeffrey Skidmore, conductor
Andrew Skidmore, cello

Bittersweet, sinuous and yearning for resolution, this is heart-rending music that tells of sacrifice and healing. We share in Mary’s sorrow at the foot of the cross in Scarlatti’s dazzling Stabat Mater, feel the anguish as Jephte’s daughter weeps, and find solace in the optimism of Bach’s Komm, Jesu, komm.

Programme includes:
JS Bach Prelude, Cello Suite No 1 in G (BWV 1007)
Purcell Hear my Prayer, O Lord
Lotti Crucifixus
D Scarlatti Stabat mater
Monteverdi Maria, quid ploras?
Carissimi Lament (from Jephte)
JS Bach Komm, Jesu, komm (BWV 229)
