In that Time – In this Time: From Monteverdi to Whitacre

Eric Whitacre and Claudio Monteverdi

This program included sacred works by early Baroque composers Claudio Monteverdi (Missa In illo tempore) and his German contemporary Christoph Demantius (Motets), both for six voices, and from the contemporary American composer Eric Whitacre (Alleluia, Oculi omnium and Lux Aurumque for four to eight voices). The harmonic language and the composition technique of the works of these composers is, as expected, contrasting, but the intensity and the introspective spiritual beauty of the works is very close.
Crescendo Chorus, Vocal Ensemble and soloists will perform a cappella, and also accompanied by a Basso Continuo group of period instruments.

This concert counts with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development’s Office of the Arts, and is also a Take Part Culturecard event of the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council.
