His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts with the Choir of Magdalen College

In collaboration with Oxford Festival of the Arts

Celebrating the 400th anniversary of the publication of Heinrich Schütz’s Psalmen David, the Choir of Magdalen College are joined by the renowned early music ensemble, His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts in psalm settings by Giovanni  Gabrieli, Gibbons, Hassler, Lassus and Monteverdi, alongside  selections from Schütz’s seminal work.

His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts is an internationally renowned, pioneering ensemble of the UK’s premier virtuoso brass players, who specialise in historically informed performances ​​of Renaissance and Baroque music. The pre-eminent group of its kind, HMSC celebrates its 37th birthday in 2019 and continues to delight audiences worldwide with the glorious sounds of its noble instruments.

The illustrious name of this world-leading cornett and sackbut ensemble is taken from five-part things for His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts by composer Matthew Locke (1621­­–77), which were performed during the coronation festivities of King Charles II in 1661.
