The acoustic and ambience of St John’s Church in Buxton whilst warm, sensitive and gratifying for string quartets and harp and guitar music, cries out for music in the Venetian style created by Giovanni Gabrieli, music that defines the period between the Renaissance and the Baroque in the latter half of the 16th century. Venetian born, Gabrieli became organist and composer of the wonderful St Mark’s Basilica, and his large output for Brass with his inspired spatial separation of differing groups laid the ground for the Baroque concertato style. This programme features the NCO Brass, and Matthew Morley at the organ with some of Gabrieli’s most well known works, along with music from his contemporary Jan Sweelinck for organ solo. It is unfailingly music to inspire, excite and in which to bask unashamedly. Matthew Morley is the Festival’s Chorus Master but also Assistant Director of Music and Organist at St Bride’s, Fleet Street in London.
