Past Concerts

The View from Rome about 1595

November 5, 2011, 8:00 pm
Capella Antiqua’s inaugural concert, featuring works by Giovanni Luigi da Palestrina, Domenico Maria Ferrabosco, and other giants of Rome’s late-Renaissance musical culture.


The View from Dresden about 1860

Romantic era choruses, songs and arias, including Brahms 3 Quartets, Op. 31; Schumann 4 Quartets, Op. 59; and Mendelssohn 3 Motets, Op. 69.

One of the final generations to live before the advent of recorded music, this was a golden age for amateur music-making. This concert explores several facets of Dresden's musical culture, ranging from the concert hall to the home and, of course, the cathedral.


The View from Mexico City about 1660

May 11, 2012, 8:00 pm
*Pre-concert Lecture at 7:15 pm
An a capella choral concert of cathedral and popular music from early Baroque Mexico City, including modern debut performances of Francisco López Capillas' Missa 'Re-Sol,' the anonymous Nocturnos, and songs in indigenous Nahuatl and Quecua languages.

Frequently overlooked, the Spanish colonies throughout Latin America and the modern Southwest were some of the very first cradles of American art music.
