Maria Laach Abbey

Maria Laach Abbey

 

 

WFMT’s weekly early music series Baroque&Before takes us to the Abbey Church, Maria Laach in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. The abbey goes back to 1093! The show’s music, by comparison is much newer, coming from 16th century composer Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina. Performances were recorded during last summer’s RheinVokal Festival with the Alamire Chamber Chorus.

Baroque&Before host Candice Agree features what she calls, “Palestrina’s most revered and iconic works,” the “parody mass” after L’héritier; Missa Nigra Sum, and motets from Canticum Canticorum.

Baroque&Before airs Thursday’s at 10:00 PM.
