Tomas Luis de Victoria's Rome

Orlando Chamber Choir
Lucy Goddard, director

Da Palestrina: Jubilate Deo omnis terra
Arcadelt: Non v'accorgete, amanti
Arcadelt: Se'l tuo partir mi spiacque
Di Lasso: Occhi, piangete
Di Lasso: Vivo sol di speranza
De Victoria: Vidi speciosam
De Victoria: O vos omnes
De Victoria: O quam gloriosum
De Victoria: Laetatus sum a 12
Marenzio: Che fa oggi il mio sole
Marenzio: Cruda Amarilli
Marenzio: Ombrose e care selve
Marenzio: Leggiadre ninfe e pastorelli amanti
De Monte: Super flumina Babylonis
Da Palestrina: Angelus Domini descendit
Anerio: from Missa Pro defunctis: Introit

On an early spring day nearly 450 years ago, a young Spanish composer wandered through Rome where he had become cantor and organist at the church of Santa Maria di Monserrato. Tomas Luis de Victoria spent 22 years in the Italian city, from 1565 to 1587, and they were productivissimo. He held a number of prestigious posts, followed in Palestrina's footsteps as Maestro di Cappella at the Pontifical Roman Seminary, and took keen inspiration from the contemporary musical styles. In return, his compositions influenced the thriving international community of composers in Rome.

Orlando Chamber Choir's programme begins with Giovanni da Palestrina's rousing motet Jubilate Deo which highlights the Renaissance master's influence on the younger De Victoria, whom he may have taught. We travel back in time to the Italian sojourns of Franco-Flemish composers Orlando di Lasso and Jacques Arcadelt. While in Rome they made their first forays into the madrigal form which, a few decades later, Luca Marenzio brought to its zenith with his chromatic style and exquisite word-painting - much to De Victoria's admiration.

At the centre of the programme are four motets by De Victoria, including his superbly-crafted twelve-part Laetatus sum and the sublime Vidi speciosam for six voice parts.

Elements of Philippe de Monte's motet Super flumina Babylonis suggest that, during his Roman years, he too was inspired by De Victoria's writing. Our journey ends with a late work by Palestrina in which a wing-flapping angel descends from heaven, and with the Introit of the profoundly moving Requiem Mass by Roman-born composer Giovanni Anerio.

On his wander through Renaissance Rome, little did De Victoria know what influence his music would have, and how it would blend with his colleagues' works into such a rich and varied programme.

Chiaroscuro: Music from Seventeenth-Century Italy

Jessica Gould, soprano
Nigel North, theorbo

Chiaroscuro: Music from Seventeenth-Century Italy

Works sacred and secular by Caccini, Castaldi, Frescobaldi, Kapsberger, Merula, Piccinini, Luigi Rossi, and Sances from the dawn of the tumultuous seventeenth century.


The Arts at Rowan

Soprano Jessica Gould has been noted for “a dramatic intensity that honored the texts” (The New York Times), “gorgeous melismatic singing (Voce di Meche) and for “beautiful interpretation” (The Lute Society of America Quarterly). Her recordings for MV Cremona include I Viaggi di Caravaggio with lutenist Diego Cantalupi and I Diletti di Mazzarino with Ensemble L’Aura Soave Cremona. Additional CDs include projects with New World Records, Naxos, Da Vinci Classics, and Centaur. Radio broadcasts include WQXR, NPR, WPBR, and WKCR, among others. Recitals of early music include the Rowan University College of Performing Arts with Nigel North and the Sorbonne recital series at Villa Finaly in Florence with guitarist Pascal Valois. Previous soloist appearances as chamber musician include the Cassatt Quartet at the Guggenheim Museum Works & Process Series, the Clarion Society, and the Four Nations Ensemble, among others in the United States, and abroad with L’Aura Soave Cremona at the Teatro all’Antica di Sabbioneta, Villa Finaly – La Chancellerie des Universités de la Sorbonne, the Great Synagogue of Florence, Palazzo Bardi, the Istituto Francese of Florence, and the Library of San Marco and Palazzo Davanzati with Musica Ricercata. With Cantalupi she has performed at the Cappella di San Luca of Santissima Annunziata in Florence, Palazzo Ducale of Sassuolo, and in New York on the La Serenissima Festival of Carnegie Hall. As artistic director of Salon/Sanctuary Concerts, her programming has been praised as “impeccably curated” by Time Out New York, “highly original” by The New York Times, and “imaginative” by New York Magazine. Honored with a residency at Villa Finaly, the Florentine home of the Sorbonne, she is tasked with researching, programming, and performing original concerts, and is the only American ever invited to create programs for four notable Florentine institutions: Palazzo Bardi, Palazzo Gondi, Palazzo Guicciardini, and L’Associazione per Boboli.

Lute and theorbo player Nigel North was initially inspired into music at age 7 by the early 1960s instrumental pop group The Shadows. He studied classical music through the violin and guitar, eventually discovering his real path in life, the lute, when he was 15. Primarily self-taught on the instrument, he has (for over 30 years) developed a unique musical life which embraces activities as a teacher, accompanist, soloist, director, and writer. Some touchstones on the way include the publication of a continuo tutor (Faber 1987) as well as his passion for the music of J. S. Bach. The four-volume CD collection Bach on the Lute was recorded on the Linn Records label (1994-97) and is now available as a four-disc box set. The ensemble Romanesca was formed by North together with Andrew Manze (violin) and John Toll (harpsichord and organ). For 10 years (1988-98), the group explored, performed, and recorded seventeenth-century chamber music, winning several international awards for their recordings. For over 20 years, North was professor of lute at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London; from 1993 to 1999 he was professor at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin; from 2005 to 2007, he was lute professor at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag, Netherlands; and since January 1999, North has been professor of music (lute) at the Jacobs School of Music’s Historical Performance Institute. Other recording projects have included Robert Dowland’s A Musical Banquet with soprano Monika Mauch for ECM (2008), Lute Songs with tenor Charles Daniels for ATMA (2007), and the Lute Music of Robert Johnson for Naxos (2010).
