Wroclaw Baroque Ensemble


8 June 2024 at 8pm in Christchurch Cathedral

The James Joyce Centre was delighted to endorse the Wroclaw Baroque Ensemble’s marvalous concert at Christchurch Cathedral on 8 June 2024 at 8pm.

During this, people embarked on a journey to timeless beauty with the exquisite works of Mikołaj Zieleński, transporting you to 17th century Venice, where his music captivates the soul with its depth and richness. An enchanting evening as we journeyed through Zieleński’s “Offertoria et Communiones,” a breathtaking collection of compositions published in 1611. From Zieleński’s extensive repertoire of 113 surviving works, the Emsemble carefully selected pieces to craft a captivating narrative steeped in the rich tapestry of salvation history. Let yourself be transported through the ages with texts inspired by the grandeur of Old Testament tales, the poignant narratives of the Gospels.

An unforgettable evening of musical mastery, where Zieleński’s compositions proudly stand alongside those of the greatest masters of the era. Don’t miss this extraordinary celebration of classical music brought to you by the Wroclaw Baroque Ensemble, under direction of ndrzej Kosendiak, renowned for their expertise in period instruments.
