Programme Note

This programme presents an exploration of a series of heart-wrenching works by Heinrich Schütz and some of his seventeenth-century German contemporaries. Produced across a period of over several decades, they are united by the common theme of being commemorative works, written in dedication to the lives of various friends, colleagues and patrons of the seventeenth-century German composer. 

Rapidly gaining attention as one of the most promising and exciting early music ensembles in the UK, Oxford Baroque is made up of both a number of young and more established professional singers and players. Originally formed by a group of students with a passion for music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries who met whilst studying at the University of Oxford, the group has expanded to include performers who have collaborated in the context of other ensembles, in their fledgling individual careers. Having recently been featured on BBC Radio 3, they have been described as “one ensemble to watch closely”, “bright young sparks” and “brimming with talent”.
