Lyrics of Love from the Old Testament
The Renaissance saw a flourishing of art, poetry, and music that the world had not seen before and has not experienced since. Composers active during this era were provided with a wealth of poetic resources from which to draw inspiration. However, one of the resources that provided a unique non-secular perspective was from one of the most exquisitely descriptive and emotionally stirring texts of the Bible: Song of Solomon, which offers both a biblical view of romantic love and a fascinating study in allegory.
GRAMMY® Award winning conductor Jason Harris leads Schola Cincinnati in this exploration of sacred poetry and music through composers who deftly merge the frivolity and amorousness of the madrigal and chanson with the austerity and profound spirituality of their church music. Come hear this 14-voice professional early music ensemble as they perform the works of Palestrina, Victoria, and Lasso, among others, in one of Cincinnati's most beautiful venues, St. Peter in Chains Cathedral, on February 10 at 7:30pm.
