A Baroque Tenebrae
A Concert based on the Passion of Christ According to St. John
Dakota Pro Musica presents a special Lenten concert of music from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Modern eras. The heart of the concert will be the entire Passion Gospel According to St. John sung through the traditional chant setting with choral responses by Tomas Luis de Victoria. Motets, movements from cantatas, hymns, and songs are placed within the story to expand on the narration.
The concert will feature a fully professional 12-voice choral ensemble with a chamber instrumental ensemble. The music is beautiful, reflective, and meditative and will provide the audience with a meaningful Lenten experience.
Dr. Jason Thoms, Founder and Artistic Director leads the concert with Assistant Conductor Abbie Eads.
