Grand Baroque II will be under Blackdowns Early Music Projects' principal director JanJoost van Elburg with the Monteverdi String Band, His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts and the Altenburg Ensemble plus a star line up of eight soloists from the country’s top ensembles including the Tallis Scholars, the Sixteen, Gabrieli Consort, Orlando Consort, Stile Antico etc.....

The programme features two spectacular baroque choral works Missa Alleluia a 36 and the Vespers a 32, by Heinrich Biber (1644-1704), a highly regarded composer and violinist as well as Kappelmeister of Salzburg Cathedral, who reached the absolute pinnacle of fame in his lifetime. The full extent of his output was obscured for centuries due to political turmoil in Eastern European and many of his works have only recently come to light. Astonishingly, his largest choral works have lain largely unperformed in spite of being written for Salzburg Cathedral, a building with an acoustic that Biber exploited to the full, using the considerable musical forces at his disposal employing voices, strings, winds, brass, timps and organs to full effect!

This spectacular baroque performance is promoted and will be performed in style by musicians assembled by Blackdowns Early Music Projects, who since 2004 have developed a reputation for excellent performances of rarely performed and recently recovered early music. Talented singers from all over the UK and Europe take part in residential rehearsals in preparation for performances working with professional instrumentalists of the highest possible calibre to bring to life some true gems of early music which have been unperformed for too long!
