Johann Rosenmüller, though born in Germany, worked in Venice as one of the successors to Monteverdi. His Vespers music is equally glorious to Monteverdi’s on a grand scale, and his smaller scale music displays some of the finest instrumental virtuosity and melodic fluidity of the 17th century.
JUST ADDED! Chant Camp with Susan Hellauer of Anonymous Four Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 11 am Immanuel Lutheran Church,122 East 88th Street (undercroft)
Susan Hellauer will lead a half-day chant camp as part of ARTEK's Rosenmuller mini-festival in early February. Chant Camp is for both professional and experienced amateur singers who want to know more about the nuts and bolts of western plainchant. Each topic presentation begins with a brief, informative, illustrated lecture, followed by plenty of group singing, to illustrate and permanently “set” the lesson. The workshop ends with a communal chant singing, combining elements of the day’s work.
