We began rehearsals for the April 29 concert of early Venetian music on Tuesday 9 January 2018 at High Church, Hilton (7:30—9:30 p.m.) and rehearsals continude at the same times and at the same venue until Tuesday 6 March, with a winter break on Tuesday 13 February. On Tuesdays 13 and 20 March, and on Tuesdays 17 and 24 April, rehearsals will take place at the same times in St Machar's Cathedral. Both our normal venues were unavailable on Tuesday 27 March during Holy Week and that rehearsal took place in St Margaret's School. There is a two week break on 3 and 10 April during the school Easter holidays. Full rehearsals with instrumental players will take place in the afternoons of Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 April.

There is a recording available of a performance of Lo Sposalizio in Venice, recorded in 1998 by the King's Consort conducted by Robert King. The recording includes a number of the pieces we will be singing and will give an impression of what the complete performance will sound like. It is available as a double CD or as downloads (full recording or individual tracks direct from Hyperion Records.

You can download the section of the programme containing the Italian words in PDF, printable format - Peter recommends you practice your pronunciation of th Italian during the Easter break.
