Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht – La Serenissima

In the Hebrew tradition no difference exists between speaking and singing, as illustrated by the fact that the texts of the Talmud are also sung. More than anybody else Benedetto Marcello was aware of this relationship between text and music. He composed his Estro poetico-armonico – polyphonic settings of the first fifty psalms – basing them on Hebrew melodies. The Nederlands Kamerkoor, with the adventurous British conductor Richard Egarr, presents a selection of these psalms.
