Soli Deo Gloria 2

I Fagiolini and The 24
Robert Hollingworth (director)
Alex Jennings (reader)

George Herbert – The Prayer
Bach – Lutheran Mass in F major
George Herbert – The Sacrifice
Bach - Cantata Wo Gott, der Herr, nicht bei uns hält (BWV 178)

Soloists from I Fagiolini join their director Robert Hollingworth and the young voices of The 24 for two works from the heart of Bach’s sacred catalogue, including a cantata that exhorts us to ‘have faith, faith and let the rest of the world grumble’ and - a mass that contrasts splendid choruses and moving arias where individual voices and solo instruments duet. Alongside the music, Alex Jennings reads two of George Herbert’s greatest poems, including his great meditation that imagines the thoughts of Christ on the cross, asking ‘Was ever grief like mine?’

‘I Fagiolini has carved out a niche for itself exploring some more ‘‘off-the-wall’’ corners of early music in a style that is at once true to the period but communicative to today’s listener.’ - Daily Telegraph
