"Spanish Songs for Lamentation and Rejoicing" - Fior Angelico

  • St. Joseph Cathedral 212 East Broad Street Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

The series of liturgies for Holy Week has inspired some of the most beautiful music in the Christian tradition, prompting composers to explore the very extremes of human emotion, from grief to exultation. This program juxtaposes these two extremes with music by the Spanish Renaissance composers Francisco Guerrero, Alonso Lobo, and Tomás Luis de Victoria, featuring Victoria’s setting of The Lamentations of Jeremiah for Good Friday as well as Lobo’s Missa Maria Magdalene for Easter Sunday.
