When you come to Evensong here it is as if you were dropping in on a conversation already in progress — a conversation between God and people which began long before you were born and will go on long after you are dead.” Why celebrate Evensong? Evensong offers to us the opportunity to gather and spend time in prayer while listening and participating in music that is

Bruckner: Mass in E Minor and Choral Masterworks

Cost: Tickets: Gen: $25; Sr/Stu: $20 - $10-$40
Performing: GMChorale - Joseph D\'Eugenio, Artistic Director
Sunday May 5, 2019
Details: The Austrian composer Anton Bruckner may be best-known for his symphonies, eleven immense orchestral works that are vast in scale and dimension. But in his “day job” as an organist and choirmaster, he composed a wealth of exquisite sacred music for his choirs at Sankt Florian monastery (where he had been a choirboy in his youth) and at the cathedral at Linz. His ethereal Mass No. 2 in E minor, composed in 1866 to celebrate a new chapel in the Linz cathedral, is scored for eight-voice mixed choir and a small group of wind instruments. This Mass, widely acknowledged as among Bruckner’s best works, evokes the cathedralesque musical architecture of the Renaissance masters overlaid with the rich harmonies of the nineteenth century. The program also includes a selection of motets by Bruckner and others. Tickets $10-$40.

Lautengalanterie: German Baroque Lute Duets
Somerville Museum, One Westwood Road (at Central St.)
Cost: Tickets: Gen: $20; Sr/Stu: $15
Performing: Timothy Burris and Olav Chris Henriksen, baroque lutes
 
Details: During the early baroque period, German lutenists embraced the new French baroque lute and its lyrical, expressive (yet intimate) musical style, but by the 18th century they had developed their own tradition – a much more outgoing kind of music. Timothy Burris and Olav Chris Henriksen will begin their concert with Johann Gumprecht’s French suite, then continue with Radolt’s musical experiments for two lutes, followed by a partita by Telemann. The concert will conclude with music in galant/early classical style, exemplified in sonatas by Corignani and Hagen. Of special interest is a recently-rediscovered concerto for two lutes by the great Silvius Leopold Weiss. Come hear the beautiful and seldom-heard sound of two baroque lutes together!
