Music in the North, Baroque Music, Parish Church of Porto Moniz
Mar 16 @ 8:00 pm

This concert will be held on March 16, Saturday, at 8:00 pm, in Parish Church of Porto Moniz, by the Olisipo Vocal Ensemble

“Catholic and Protestant Baroque”

 

As part of the 600th anniversary celebrations of the Discovery of the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo, the “Music in the North” cycle of Baroque music aims to explore and promote among the Madeiran public one of the most remarkable and rich periods of our musical heritage from the 17th and 18th centuries. A period of great transformations, it laid the foundations for the musical system still in use today and produced remarkable composers and works we all know and love.

The title, “Music in the North”, refers to the fact that the entire cycle is to be presented on the north coast of Madeira, thus giving these municipalities a cultural event with unique characteristics on the island. This cycle of music was presented by the Regional Secretary of Tourism and Culture at the congress “São Jorge – Memory and Future” held in August of last year. The focus on the Baroque period arose from the relationship with the rich heritage existing in this parish: the treasured Parish Church of São Jorge.

Centred on sacred music, the programme will present works by great international composers, such as the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi, together with a Salve Regina by Alessandro Scarlatti, both works for Soprano, Alto and Orchestra which will be interpreted by the Mateus Baroque Orchestra on period instruments. Also included are works by Vivaldi and Bach and by famous Portuguese composers such as António Teixeira, Carlos Seixas and Francisco António de Almeida, among others, interpreted by two vocal ensembles dedicated to the interpretation of polyphonic music from Portugal. The aim is to showcase some of the national and international music of this period.

The programmes also seek to mark the period of Lent which coincides with the festival, putting an emphasis on works that were composed for this period and thus encouraging reflection.
