Texas Early Music
A Sponsored Project of the
Austin Circle of Theaters
is pleased to inform you of a special concert presented by
The Schola Cantorum of St. Mary's Cathedral
Vespers for the
Blessed Virgin, 1610
The Texas Early Music Project,
in association with The
Schola Cantorum of St. Mary's Cathedral is
proud to present a historic performance of Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 at
8:15pm on September 24.
Jeffrey Jones Ragona and
Daniel Johnson will direct.
The 1610 Vespers remains today one of the greatest examples of sacred
music, on a level with Handel's Messiah and Bach's St. Matthew Passion.
This performance marks the first complete original instrument performance
in Austin and will be at the newly restored and acoustically brilliant
Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Austin.
Claudio Monteverdi was one
of the most significant revolutionaries to bring about the change in
musical style from the Renaissance to the Baroque period. He is
known for his development of solo monody, opera, continuo, conscious
functional tonality, and the use of precise instrumental textures to
achieve dramatic effect.
