To begin our 2014–2015 season, Musikay presents to you the music of two of the leading composers of the Renaissance era: Guillaume Dufay and Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina. Dufay’s Missa Ecce Ancilla Domini was written for the celebration of the Annunciation—the angel Gabriel delivering the news to Mary of her coming child, through musical dialogue. Palestrina’s sacred motets embedded the beauty and dignity that is Renaissance music. His madrigals show a wonderful sense of word painting and pastoral elements that Palestrina uses to communicate the narrative of the poem. What makes the Mona Lisa smile? Join us for a few surprises. We guarantee a riveting concert experience for all.
