Event description

Description

Sometimes our expectations are overwhelmed, leaving us thunderstruck. Join Tactus for our second anniversary concert, as we present Renaissance choral motets about anticipation and wonder: from the quivering hope of the bridegroom to the astonishment of the Resurrection. Our offerings range from the celestially serene music of Post-Tridentine Roman composer Palestrina, to the pictorial and lively motets of Guerrero and Byrd. Organ interludes by Eugene Petrushansky.

This concert is a fringe performance as part of the Berkeley Early Music Festival.

Quae est ista - Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Dum transisset sabbatum - John Taverner

Nigra sum sed formosa - Jean L'Heritier
