Praetorius: In dulci jubilo
A Festival of German Baroque Christmas music
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields
with the Washington Cornett and Sackbutt ensemble
Michael Praetorius single-handedly produced much of the Lutheran church music heard in northern Germany in the early 17th century. In celebration of the 400th anniversary of his death, the concert will present music that might have been heard at a Christmas Day mass in 1620, highlighting Praetorius’s virtuosic vocal and instrumental writing, and including some of his joyful settings of popular German Christmas carols and jubilant music for brass.
Tickets will be mailed after September 6
