Blissed Out Baroque
Saturday March 21, 2020 at 8:00 PM
Choral Meditations from the Baroque Era - TO BE RESCHEDULED
Featuring Schütz's Musikalische Exequien and Allegri's Miserere. The former served as a model for Brahms in its use of comforting texts for the living to honor the dead, while the latter looks back at an earlier and simpler choral style more akin to that of the Renaissance.
THIS PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED
As you know, the impact of COVID-19 has reached the arts community nationwide. It is with great reluctance that due to the current environment we have decided to postpone this concert. While we are eager to perform it, we feel an obligation to our audience, our community, and our singers to observe social distancing in order to contribute to community-wide efforts to slow the spread of the virus.
We value our Musica Sacra community highly; our decision to cancel the concert was made before our venue, the First Church in Cambridge, closed the church to all activities, including the Sunday service.* Our first priority needs to be the safety of our society at large, even though it means making sacrifices that at this time may seem unnecessary. The advice to practice social distancing is being given by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others as a means of slowing the spread of this virus, and we all must do what we can. We hope that you stay safe and healthy.
Please watch for future updates to be sent by email and posted to this website.
