Gabrieli Roar - In Dulci Jubilo

2 December 2022, 19:15


Gabrieli Roar presents In Dulci Jubilo, a festive celebration of the spectacular polychoral music of Michael Praetorius and Heinrich Schütz.

Led by Gabrieli Artistic Director, Paul McCreesh, more than 2,000 late primary and secondary students will join Gabrieli’s world-class musicians across eight performances in regional cathedrals around the UK.

A belated celebration of the 400th anniversary of Praetorius’ death, this is surely some of the most exciting and flamboyant music of the early baroque, the perfect platform to encourage young singers to connect with choral and classical music, and heritage culture.

Gabrieli’s own acclaimed recording of Praetorius’ Christmas mass remains the group’s best-selling album. In Dulci Jubilo will feature major works from this feast of choral delights, including Puer Natus in Bethleham, Von Himmel Hoch, Quem Pastores, and of course the thrilling setting of In Dulci Jubilo to showcase massed trumpets and voices.

Complementing this cornerstone music of Praetorius will be repertoire from later periods, a Christmastide treat for audiences and singers alike.

Tickets: £10, £15. Under 16s: free of charge (with an adult)
