Early music is not all intense and serious – and the Welsh Camerata hopes to prove that in this concert of choral curiosities from the 16th to the beginning of the 19th century. From a piece in which every chord is a discord, through flying fishes to the joys of milking parlours, if you’re not all at sea by the end of it, then nothing will surprise you.
Spem in Alium
A week before the All at Sea! concert, there is an opportunity to hear members of the Welsh Camerata and friends in Thomas Tallis’s monumental motet for 40 voices, Spem in Alium. The performance will also include Striggio’s 40-part Ecce Beatam Lucem (which reputedly inspired Tallis’s work), and other items, in a free concert (retiring collection for the disability charity SENSE): 6pm Saturday 16th June, St German’s Church, Metal Street, Cardiff CF24 0JY.
