( Sun., Mar. 30, 2014 )
Performed by Duke Vespers Ensemble Concert (Brian A. Schmidt, conductor)
Duke University Chapel, 401 Chapel Drive, Durham, NC 27708
This concert will feature the rarely performed late-Renaissance masterwork Lagrime di San Pietro by composer Orlando Lasso, which explores the grief of St. Peter after his denial of Christ. This sequence of 21 madrigals represents the height of Renaissance polyphony, and combines techniques used throughout Lasso’s career.
