Salisbury Renaissance Choir To Visit Javea

LOVERS of Renaissance music are in for a rare treat when the ‘Cantores Sabctis Diebus’ perform a free concert at the Port Church Mare de Deu de Loreto in Javea on Saturday, February 18.

Directed by Nicholas Hale, the choir, based in the historical city of Salisbury, will be on a flying visit for this one-off special evening with the double treat of incorporating a visit to this truly amazing church venue in Javea port, designed as the keel of a ship.

Cantores Sanctis Diebus have been together for around 30 years and specialise in the golden age of Renaissance music, 1500-1650, particularly by English and Spanish composers.

Their programme will include, Motet ‘Ecce Sacerdos Magnus’ – Tomás Luis de Victoria – Mass ‘Ecce Sacerdos’ – Pedro Guerrero Motets & Anthems composed by Thomas Tallis and William Byrd.

The concert will commence at 9pm, but apart from an expected full house, it would be worth arriving in time to take a look around the magical church interior.

As mentioned, entrance is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted to help the needy families of Javea through the auspices of the charity organisation, Caritas.
