Musica Spei will perform a contemplative variety of pieces from the Renaissance that reflect the somber nature of the Lenten season. The audience will experience the chromatic, heart-wrenching sounds of Carlo Gesualdo as well as the soaring lines of Orlande de Lassus, Francisco Guerrero, and William Byrd. Pieces featuring all male and female voices will be interspersed within this program. Members of Musica Spei will provide spoken commentary for the music between pieces. Join us as Musica Spei brings the colorful and dramatic sounds of the 14th-16th centuries to life.
