Forgotten Gems: Exploring Works of the German Renaissance and Baroque
Session Abstract: As historical research advances, choral scholars are taking a greater interest in forgotten pieces of our choral history. This presentation explores the under-represented people and pieces of the German Renaissance through middle Baroque eras, from madrigals and motets to cantatas by Johann Schein, Hans Leo Hassler, the other Bachs, and many others. Explore expressive and accessible pieces for any level or voicing of ensemble. Attendees will receive a resource database of compositions and public domain scores.
