St Cecilia 2018
Each year Josie and the Emeralds celebrate St Cecilia, Patron Saint of Music, with music that was performed on St Cecilia’s Day in late 17th Century London, one of the most eagerly anticipated music days of the year. Henry Purcell, John Blow and Giovanni Battista Draghi were renowned for the “excesses of pleasure” they created for this “glorious day” where St Cecilia is cast as the “Divine Cecilia,…Our art’s inspirer, Music’s patroness”. This program features excerpts from these Odes to St Cecilia, madrigals and consorts from the English Renaissance and music that pays homage to refugees in Australia’s offshore detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru.
