Mortal Voices - music by Pergolesi, Corelli and Handel
Corelli - Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 1 in D major Handel - Cantata HWV230 "Ah! Che troppo ineguali" Handel - Cantata HWV82 'Il Duello Amoroso' Pergolesi - Stabat Mater Christian Curnyn - Director & Harpsichord Keri Fuge - Soprano Tim Mead - Countertenor In a concert that will pull at the heart strings, baroque specialist, Christian Curnyn, directs soprano, Keri Fuge, and countertenor, Tim Mead, in some of the most sublime music of the early 18th century. Pergolesi’s beautiful Stabat Mater is his best-known work and one of the finest settings of this sorrowful song to Mary at the Crucifixion. A hidden gem in this concert is Handel’s cantata "Ah! che troppo ineguali", an anguished appeal of mortal voices to Mary to extinguish every spark of warlike fury and bring peace - it is paired here with the altogether earthier cantata, Il Duello Amoroso. Almost a mini-opera, it tells the story of an 'amorous duel' between the shepherd, daliso, and the shepherdess, Amaryllis, the music perfectly capturing the drama of the story.
