Immerse yourself in polyphonic motets from Renaissance Europe performed by Scaramella – a capella lower voice quartet.
Much like their namesake’s character from the Commedia dell’arte, Scaramella can turn their hand to almost anything. Their home may be in Renaissance Europe, but they are as likely to be found in a recusant chapel as a Georgian drinking den, or a Parisian cafe.
Pooling expertise from backgrounds in Cathedral music, opera, close harmony and early music, they work collaboratively to create informed and distinctive performances. Their members have sung with many of the finest professional choirs and consort groups in the UK and Europe, as well as being successful soloists in their own right.
Virtual ticket: Experience the concert from the comfort of your own home. You will be provided with a zoom link before the event and can join the livestream of Scaramella’s performance from wherever you are in the world.
Register interest for early bird in-person ticket: If you’d rather see the performance in person and visit us at the beautiful St Mary’s parish church in Barnard Castle, then this is for you. Unfortunately, with the uncertainty of Covid-19, we don’t know yet how many people can be allowed to join the concert in person, but we will likely only be able to sell a small number of tickets. By signing up for the Early bird priority booking, you will receive an email as soon as the government releases more information and in-person tickets become available. Registering for the email list is free, but you will have to purchase in-person tickets for £11.37 each when they are released.
St. Mary’s is open for private prayer each weekday from 10.00am – 4.00pm
