EVER ANCIENT, EVER NEW

Bach & Nowakowski on the Soul’s Awakening
March 6-8, 2020

Continuing our cycle of Bach cantatas, this program during Lent 2020 will feature penitential music of J.S. Bach from various sacred works, including arias from his famous Matthäus-Passion and Johannes-Passion and solo organ works. Three Notch'd Road has commissioned living American composer Mark Nowakowski’s “Quo Vadis” and will give the world premiere of this work, scored for three singers and instrumental ensemble. The text recounts a Christian tradition that when St. Peter tried to flee martyrdom, on the road of escape he saw a vision of Christ who asked, "Quo vadis/Where are you going?" which encouraged Peter's return to his duty and ultimately his own crucifixion in Rome.

ALLELUIA

Praetorius for Easter
April 24-26, 2020

In 1618, the cathedral of Magdeburg, Germany burst forth in celebration of Easter with hymns of “solemn peace and joy” by Michael Praetorius. His music combined the best of Lutheran German hymnody with the cutting-edge musical innovations of Catholic Italy in a dynamic call and response of voices and instruments. During this program, audiences are both immersed and even participate in the music of Easter Vespers at Magdeburg. Jeremy Ward, a familiar face to our audiences, will be program director for this exciting concert.
