Musica Sacra: Light of Light - Music of Lassus, Lauridsen, and Léonin, with Gregorian Chant

TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018
7:30 PM – 9 PM, GREAT CHOIR

The luminous Gregorian chant propers for the Sunday after Easter alternate with the great Flemish composer Orlando di Lasso’s Missa super Osculetur me. This musical tour through the Renaissance extends back to the earliest roots of polyphony, with a performance of Leonin’s Alleluia Pascha nostrum from 13th century Paris. Josquin Des Prez’s extraordinary Ave Maria, Lassus’ exhilarating motet Surgens Jesus, and the vibrant American voices of Morten Lauridsen and Kevin Oldham make this program a sonic tour de force guaranteed to take you to another time and place.
