We return to St. Seraphim for our fifth annual concert in its inspiring space and acoustics. Our repertoire is built around the Missa Paschalis of Ludwig Senfl. Set for five voices, the piece invokes a special world of its own—particularly in the atmospheric Gloria, consisting of many small ‘tone paintings’ which bring to life the successive sections of the text. A Credo by Senfl’s teacher and colleague Heinrich Isaac and motets from the monumental collection Choralis Constantinus complete the music for Easter Mass, while Senfl’s joyful (and rarely performed) Quinque salutationes Domini nostri Jesu Christi punctuates the program with its many exuberant terms of endearment.
