Abendmusik – The Splendour of the German Baroque
Wednesday 4 January, 7pm, St Peter’s Anglican Church, Queen St, Mornington
We welcome 2012 with a return to the wonderful Peninsula Summer Music Festival on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. While Julia takes a well-earned short break from performing for this concert while she looks after her new daughter Mina, Latitude 37 welcomes guest artists Simon Martyn Ellis (theorbo) and Laura Moore (treble viol) as well as vocalists Siobhán Stagg (soprano), German alto Dorothee Merkel, Robert MacFarlane (tenor) and Nick Dinopoulos (bass-baritone) for this performance in the Northern German tradition of Abendmusik – evening music for the people. Be swept away by this atmospheric candlelit concert for voices and instruments including works by Buxtehude, JC Bach, Schmelzer and JS Bach’s beloved motet Jesu, meine freude BWV227.
