Renaissance Music from Germany
- June 9, 2018

Madregalia!! presents "Renaissance Music from Germany", a concert of secular and sacred music from the German Renaissance Saturday, June 9th, at 7:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church of Monterey, 501 El Dorado St. in Monterey. This concert in Madregalia's 15th year explores the wealth of music from Germany from the 16th, and early 17th centuries. The program includes lively dances, part songs and even polychoral motets. Among the featured works are Heinrich Schuetz's "Fili mi Absalom" and his dramatic 14 voice motet "Saul," the proto cantata "Herr Christ" by Michael Praetorius and Hans Leo Hassler's seminal madrigal "Mein g'mueth ist mir verwirret" which was the original source for the iconic passion chorale in Bach's "St. Matthew Passion." Suggested donation $10 - students free.

Check out Lyn Bronson's review of our Christmas concert, "Twelfth Night" and Robin McKee Williams' review of last summer's concert, "Festa Italiana!"
