The Church of Saint Creu in Palma completed its capacity last Thursday, on the occasion of a concert of choral music and organ offered by Capella Mallorquina, Obra Cultural, sponsored by Barceló Foundation.
The repertoire was a journey through the Baroque, especially through the works of J. S. Bach, but the Ave Maria by Caccini or the Alleluia of Handel’s Messiah, which the Capella interpreted as an encore at the end of the performance, were also very well received”, explained José María Moreno, direct from Capella Mallorquina, who was co-directed by José Martínez for this occasion.
It should be noted that the organ of the Saint Creu is considered one of the most important in Mallorca and this was evident in the concert, in which the titular organist, Bartomeu Manresa, brilliantly accompanied the performance of the Capella Mallorquina and its soloist, Cristina Van Roy. He also offered some works of great difficulty, such as Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme or Passacaglia et Thema Fugathum, which he brilliantly performed to the delight of all those present.
A great recital in which again highlighted the soprano Cristina Van Roy and once again had a side of solidarity, as donations of the tickets will go to the Alisol food solidarity project, of the Barceló Foundation.
“The concert ended with the Brevis Mass by the Dutch composer Jacob de Haan, a contemporary piece, since it was premiered in 2008, but with a very direct, refined and emotional language, which enchanted the audience, who recognized at the end of the performance, that it had been a wonderful discovery”, emphasized José María Moreno.
