Our concert begins in the emotional depths of Holy Week with Timor et Tremor, the first of Poulenc’s powerful motets for a time of penitence (1938). Poulenc’s music – shifting between anger, trepidation, and a yearning for salvation – sets the scene for a series of engagements with the meaning of death and rebirth. The Renaissance master Jean L’Héritier (c.1480-1552) provides a beautiful but complex setting of Surrexit Pastor Bonus (‘The Good Shepherd has arisen’). This six-part motet moves back and forth between dissonance and resolution as it celebrates rebirth against an awareness of Christ’s death as sacrifice. Another Poulenc motet – the comparatively little-heard Ave Verum Corpus (1952), for women’s voices – reflects upon Christ’s crucified body. The climax of our concert comes in a complete performance of Bach’s youthful cantata Christ lag in Todes Banden, written for Easter Sunday (probably in 1707, when Bach was 22 years old). This wonderfully vigorous and virtuosic cantata depicts Christ as victorious on behalf of humankind in the battle between life and death.

For its performance of this cantata, Allegri Ensemble is delighted to be joined by the strings of the Pillinger Quartet with Thomas Rimes (continuo).

Tickets are available online from Trybooking or at the door from 2:30 pm.
