The Farrant Singers - Carissimi Jepthe

English 17th century anthems make up the the first half of this concert with music from Orlando Gibbons and Henry Purcell including Gibbons's 'This is a record of John' and Purcell's 'Hear my prayer'

After the interval is the early oratorio by Giacomo Carissimi, the story of Jephte.
Jephte led the Israelites in battle against Ammon and, in exchange for defeating the Ammonites, made a vow to sacrifice whatever would come out of the door of his house first. When his daughter was the first to come out of the house, he immediately regretted the vow, which would require him to sacrifice his daughter to God. With a heavy heart Jephte then carried out his vow.
