Ex Cathedra: Music for Holy Week

Jeffrey Skidmore conducts Ex Cathedra in a sequence of music for Holy Week from St John's Smith Square featuring oratorios by Charpentier and Carissimi.

Recorded on Monday 26th March at St John's, Smith Square

Jeffrey Skidmore and his acclaimed ensemble Ex Cathedra present a sequence of Lenten music entitled "Harmonic Spiritual Theatre: Sacrifice, betrayal, passion". The programme is arranged around two of the earliest examples of oratorio: Charpentier's The Denial of St Peter, and Carissimi's emotionally-charged Jepthe. Surrounding these miniature dramatic masterpieces are motets from Italian and French Renaissance composers including Monteverdi, Gesualdo, Anerio and Bouzignac. Presented by Martin Handley

Anerio: 'Rispondi, Abramo' from Teatro armonico spirituale di madrigal
Monteverdi/Coppini: O infelix recessus; O Jesu mea vita; Stabat Virgo Maria; Ure me, Domine
Gesualdo: Sparge la morte
Bouzignac: O Mors, ero mors tua
Charpentier: Le reniement de St Pierre
