Victoria and the Virgin

Music for the Virgin Mary by Spain's Greatest Composer Chantry: Washington's Leading Early Music Voices
Victoria composed some of his most beautiful and joyful music in honor of the Virgin Mary. The Missa Trahe me post te is based on a motet setting of a verse ("Draw me after thee") from the Song of Songs, an Old Testament book interpreted since early Christian times as a Marian allegory. Victoria's settings of the Magnificat (Mary's Canticle) and the Marian antiphons are among the finest ever composed.

This one-of-a-kind program intermingles classic spirituals with classic religious arias, exploring an expression of religious fervor common to both.

B Minor Mass: J.S. Bach

Washington National Cathedral
As the Christian church enters its Holy Week devotions, the Cathedral Choir performs JS Bach’s towering B minor mass. The mass form, which finds it root in the events of the Last Supper is richly eloquent in the hands of JS Bach. Celebration and solemnity go hand in hand and captures the bittersweet experiences of Christ’s death and resurrection. There is no better way to experience this masterwork than on Palm Sunday in Washington National Cathedral, performed stylistically as Bach would have heard it.
