Musica Nuova is joined by acclaimed historical dancer Dorothy Olsson on a concert of German and Italian vocal music.  The program features the florid coloratura of Monteverdi’s sacred vocal solos alongside Cima’s statelyConcerti Ecclesiastici.  Charming duets from Thomas Selle’s Deliciarum Juvenilium evoke love affairs, while Hans Neusiedler’s love songs exhibit intense sensuality.  While these folksy German tunes contrast with the ornate Italian style, the earthy love songs mirror the ecstatic yearning of the sacred music.
