Veni, Sponsa Mea - Convent Composers and The Song of Songs
Tuesday 23rd October 2018, 8pm - Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford
Throughout history, the Song of Songs has been a divisive text in liturgical contexts. With its passionate, often erotic symbolism, it has been construed as a metaphor for earthly love, for the love of Christ for the world, for the relationship of the church to God, and so on.
One of its most prominent images is that of the bride being led into a loving paradise. For nuns, whose veiling ceremonies were intimately connecte with the ideas of a "spiritual marriage" to both the church and Christ, this book and its related paraphrases were a wellspring of inspiration to those composers who lived and worked in convents.
In Christ Church Cathedral, originally founded by St Frideswide as a convent, we'll present music by composers including Aleotti, Cozzolani, and Leonarda that explores themes of love, marriage, and devotion.
Now May We Singen - Music for Advent and Christmas
Saturday 8th December 2018, 7:30pm - St James' Church, Chipping Campden
From the angels that sing and the cattle that low to the wisdom of the star and musings of a stable mouse, this programme will explore the voices that tell and re-tell the stories of Christmas. Including music by Leighton, McDowall, Schütz, Byrd and Hildegard von Bingen, Untune the Sky presents a programme of word and song for Advent and Christmas in the beautiful surroundings of St James’ Church, Chipping Campden.
Tickets will be available later in the year.
