Schola concert: Masterworks of Lent
Sublime music by Gesulado: his 'Tenebarae factae sunt.' These motets feature some of his most daring harmonies that powerfully depict the last hours of Christs life. The Gesualdo pieces will be coupled with later masterworks that are in the a cappella tradition: a sublime motet by Josef Rheinberger and the famous 'Beati Quorum Via' by C. V. Stanford.
Also in the program are two great Bach cantata arias from 'Ich habe genug' and 'Vergnügte Ruh' and an aria from Handel's 'Theodora.' The final work will be Jona, an early oratorio by the Italian master Carissimi.
Pre-concert talk at 7:00 PM.
Concert will be performed in Falmouth and in Portland at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, and the Cathedral of Saint Luke. In addition, is a concert in North Conway, New Hampshire presented by the White Mountain Musical Arts.
Seating is first come first serve, arrive early for best seating options. Doors open 45 minutes prior to performance.
