Voices from the Village: Folksongs from Around the World
Saturday May 11, 2019 at 8:00 PM
A rich vein of choral gold
Folksongs are as old as civilization, and composers throughout time have used them for inspiration. From the Renaissance era with Dufay's L'Homme Armé and Hollander's Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen to the modern era with Schönberg's settings of German folk songs, as well as other composers' settings of Irish, British, American, Slavic, and Indonesian ones, Musica Sacra explores this rich vein of choral gold.
