Pre-concert talk 6.30pm – free to ticket-holders

The Academy of Ancient Music and VOCES8 travel from Rome to Peru, as they trace the remarkable journey of Domenico Zipoli: priest, traveller and composer extraordinaire.

The baroque world was wider – and more wonderful – than we often assume. Domenico Zipoli began his career as a student of Scarlatti in Rome, and ended it as one of the most striking European voices in the music of South America. Today the AAM uncovers his legacy and his world, in company with a group of singers who’ve become a byword for sonic adventure, VOCES8.

Zipoli’s own gorgeously rich and expressive sacred music takes its place alongside the works that inspired him: music by Palestrina, Pasquini, Scarlatti and Gabrieli, as well as the indigenous voices of South America itself. It’s a lively and thought-provoking perspective on the wider world of the baroque tradition, and with VOCES8 – the group that critics have called ‘the Rolls Royce of British a capella ensembles’ – joining Laurence Cummings and the AAM, it’ll positively sparkle.
