Barackhill, Newport, Mayo,

A unique and exquisite event - experience the sounds of 17th Century Venice with Resurgam and the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble and special guest ensemble Cór Mhaigh Eo.

Resurgam, Ireland's acclaimed professional choral ensemble, continues to bring the glories of seventeenth century Europe to the west of Ireland - and in February 2020, to Newport, Co. Mayo and the delightful surroundings of the St. Patrick's Church.

Resurgam teams up with the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, and special guest ensemble Cór Mhaigh Eo, under the direction of Dr Brian Lennon, in presenting Venetian Splendour, a celebration of Monteverdi's masterwork Selva Morale e Spirituale.

Here is an opportunity to experience the unique sounds of seventeenth century Venice with period instruments and virtuoso vocalists.
