Gordon: Crucifixus London premiere during Holy Week Festival added by geoffreygordoncomposer on 20 Dec 2019 tag | report
This programme takes as its starting point the famous 8-part Crucifixus setting by the Italian composer Antonio Lotti, but also includes the more developed 10-part setting before concluding with the richly elaborate 16-part setting by Antonio Caldara – also from Venice but 100 years later. Geoffrey Gordon’s contemporary setting is inspired by Lotti’s masterpiece and creates a vivid soundscape with double choir and the plaintive voice of a solo cello. Kenneth Leighton’s 3-movement Cantata Crucifixus pro nobis breaks away from the liturgical text, setting a more visionary, mystical triptych of poems by the 17th-century writer Patrick Carey.
