Christmas in Baroque Malta


  • St. Paul MN

Ensemble alto with the Rose Ensemble.

Back by popular demand! A treasure trove of vocal manuscripts quietly at rest for centuries now comes to life in this joyful program of 17th-century Christmas music found in the archives of St. Paul’s Cathedral in Malta. Dazzling Roman ornamentation and sonorous Venetian double-choir settings reflect this repertoire’s Italian heritage, which unfolds in a delightful display of solos, duets, trios, and grand works for our full ensemble of singers and Baroque chamber orchestra. Come welcome the glory of the season as well as the release of The Rose Ensemble’s world-premiere recording of this incredible music.
