The Marian Consort
Rory McCleery director
Gabriel Jackson Stabat Mater 18'
Tomkins Then David mourned 4'
Dani Howard new work (premiere) 15'
Scarlatti Stabat Mater 25'
The powerful text of the Stabat Mater has inspired composers for centuries, and this concert contrasts two outstanding examples of heartfelt and poignant settings from the seventeenth century and from the composer of this year's festival commission, Gabriel Jackson. In between, the Marian Consort perform their newly commissioned work from Dani Howard, whose music has been described as 'sophisticated and incredibly beautiful'.
Seating in our venues will be laid out in line with the UK Government’s COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the festival. At present we are selling to full venue seating plans, in line with the proposed lifting of restrictions on the 19 July. If restrictions are not lifted, we will be reverting back to socially distanced seating, and we may have to refund tickets for later bookers if capacities remain restricted.
