[Canceled] Sacred Baroque: beautiful music for Holy Week
Voci Women’s Vocal Ensemble
Mitchell Covington, Artistic Director
In March and April, Voci Women’s Vocal Ensemble offers two concerts of stunning sacred Baroque music, accompanied by the Jubilate Baroque Orchestra on period instruments. In anticipation of Holy Week, the culminating days of Lent observed by Christians throughout the ages, the concerts will feature Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s exquisite and beloved Stabat Mater, a 12-movement setting of the 13th century hymn to the Virgin Mary. Also on the program are movements from Johann Adolf Hasse’s Miserere, the motet, Salve Regina by Renaissance master, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and the Concerto Armonico #5 by Unico Wilhelm van Wassenaer, originally attributed to Pergolesi.
Whether you’re looking for a profound Holy Week experience or seek beautiful, historically accurate performances of stunning Baroque music, this will be a memorable musical occasion.
Concerts March 29 in Berkeley and April 4 in Lafayette.
