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. DomenicoZipoli began his career as a student of Scarlatti in Rome, and ended it as one of the moststriking European voices in the music of South America. Today the AAM uncovers his legacyand his world, in company with a group of singers who’ve become a byword for sonicadventure, VOCES8. Zipoli’s own gorgeously rich and expressive sacred music takes its place alongside theworks that inspired him: music by Palestrina, Pasquini, Scarlatti and Gabrieli, as well as theindigenous voices of South America itself. It’s a lively and thought-provoking perspective onthe wider world of the baroque tradition, and with VOCES8 – the group that critics havecalled ‘the Rolls Royce of British a capella ensembles’ – joining Laurence Cummings and theAAM, it’ll positively sparkle.
