Cape Consort & Camerata Tinta Barocca – Handel Dixit Dominus, Bach A: Mass #ConcertReview

Hans Huyssen: “We are now at a stage where we can perform major baroque pieces with local forces!” From deep within the folds of the work, Lente Louw’s De torrente in via emerged like Venus in Botticelli’s painting. Her crescendo was so gradual as to seem magical, and with Antoinette Blyth they created the most soothing healing moment. The final chorus filled St Andrews with a flood of serotonin that developed in swirling eddies continuously transforming and fractalizing, following what could only be a divine blueprint. As Dippenaar commented afterwards, Bach is on a whole different level!
