Musica Sacra Italiana

Sat, 8 Feb 2020

From renaissance polyphony to the romantics, our concert brings you some of the most beautiful and inspiring church music from Italy.

Together with wonderful pieces by Monteverdi and Palestrina, we have work by the lesser known Lodovico Viadana and religious works b Rossini and Verdi, bot beetter known for their operas.  Verdi's Ave Maria is an amazing and unexpected piece, written in response to a challenge.  If Sch├╝tz comes as a surprise in a concert of Italian music, he studied under Gabriele and Monteverdi in Venice and helped to introduce the Italian baroque style to Germany.
