The baroque world was wider – and more wonderful – than we often assume. Domenico
Zipoli began his career as a student of Scarlatti in Rome, and ended it as one of the most
striking European voices in the music of South America. Today the AAM uncovers his legacy
and his world, in company with a group of singers who’ve become a byword for sonic
adventure, VOCES8.
Zipoli’s own gorgeously rich and expressive sacred music takes its place alongside the
works that inspired him: music by Palestrina, Pasquini, Scarlatti and Gabrieli, as well as the
indigenous voices of South America itself. It’s a lively and thought-provoking perspective on
the wider world of the baroque tradition, and with VOCES8 – the group that critics have
called ‘the Rolls Royce of British a capella ensembles’ – joining Laurence Cummings and the
AAM, it’ll positively sparkle.
