In the Shadow of the Cross

March 31, 2022 8 pm in the Church (7 pm Lecture in Laughlin Hall)

Dieterich Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri
Domenico Scarlatti: Stabat Mater
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields
with Baroque in the Fields
This concert presents two of the Baroque era’s towering masterpieces for the Easter season. Buxtehude’s most expansive work, Membra Jesu Nostri, is a cycle of seven cantatas forming a meditation on the Passion. The work, dating from 1680, is a tour de force assimilating all of Buxtehude’s vocal compositional styles including concerto-motets, chorale settings, varied strophic arias, as well as vocal concertos employing all the textural and tonal developments of the late seventeenth century. Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater is written for ten distinct soloists who work together to create remarkable shifting sets of changing and contrasting sonorities, textures and effects.

Chiara Margarita Cozzolani: Vespers for the Blessed Virgin Mary

Virtual Encore Recording is Available

Chiara Margarita Cozzolani: Vespers for the Blessed Virgin Mary
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields
Over the last thirty years, performances and scholarship have given us some idea of the remarkable musical world of cloistered nuns in early modern Italy. Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602-1677) was a Benedictine nun who lived her life at the convent of Santa Radegonda, near the Duomo in Milan. Despite the era’s many restrictions on women, she published four remarkable collections of sacred vocal music. The imagination and technical virtuosity of the two surviving collections rival that of her male peers, including Monteverdi, Carissimi and Cavalli. Her music displays passionate intensity and experimental impulses.

Praetorius: In dulci jubilo

December 9, 2021 8 pm in the Church (7 pm Lecture in the Church)

A Festival of German Baroque Christmas music
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields
with the Washington Cornett and Sackbutt ensemble
Michael Praetorius single-handedly produced much of the Lutheran church music heard in northern Germany in the early 17th century. In celebration of the 400th anniversary of his death, the concert will present music that might have been heard at a Christmas Day mass in 1620, highlighting Praetorius’s virtuosic vocal and instrumental writing, and including some of his joyful settings of popular German Christmas carols and jubilant music for brass.
