Also back this year on the occasion of the Feast of the Redeemer the famous concert of sacred music offered to the city of Venice by the Cultural Music Venice by Roberta Reeder. Performed by Ensemble Musica Venice, it will be held Friday, July 15 at 20.30 in the Palladian setting of the magnificent church built to thank Christ the Redeemer in saving Venice from the plague. Admission is free.

It is precious concert for the songs that comprise it, and their enforcement, chosen for their relevance to the Feast of the Redeemer, as "Christe Redemptor Ominium" for organ performed by Maria Jovanovic. The event also features two beautiful duets: one of C. Monteverdi, "Come, come to sitientes aquas Domini" (all you who are thirsty, come to the waters... Incline your ear, and come unto me ") (Isaiah , 55), and "Tantum ergo," a hymn composed by St. Thomas Aquinas for the celebration of the solemnity of Corpus Christi, music by A. Tonelli with music of the sonata no. 7, op. 3 A. Corelli, both performed by Elena Bertuzzi, soprano, and Giovanna Dissera Bragadin, alto. Another piece by Monteverdi, the beautiful motet "Come videte" will be sung by Elena Bertuzzi, while "Beatus Vir" by L. Leo (Psalm 111) ( "Blessed is the man who fears the Lord / and find great joy in his commandments ") will be performed by Joan Dissera Bragadin; It is a text set to music by many leading composers, and is one of the songs of "Vespers Of The Confessor" by WA Mozart.

When the plague arrived in Venice in 1575, the Venetians saw it as a sign from God, a punishment for their sins. Taverns closed their doors, the courts ceased to function, in the prisons only a few were left alive. More than 50,000 Venetians died, among them the great Titian. For having saved from the plague, the Senate voted in favor of building a new church on the island of Giudecca, asking Andrea Palladio to design your work. July 20, 1577, the end of the plague was celebrated with a procession that reached the Church of the Redeemer through a bridge of boats. After nearly five centuries the tradition keeps alive the memory of this event.
