This fascinating and varied program features a powerful dramatic work by Monteverdi, beautiful choral psalms by Biber, interspersed with three of his extraordinary Mystery Sonatas for violin, and a buoyant cantata by Buxtehude, a North German composer revered by the young J.S. Bach. The program closes with Handel’s Gloria, a virtuoso showcase for our brilliant soprano Mary Wilson. Program: Monteverdi: Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda; Heinrich Biber: Choral psalms & three Mystery Sonatas; Dietrich Buxtehude: Cantata: “Heut triumphieret Gottes Sohn”; G.F. Handel: “Gloria” for soprano and strings
