The 34th Season of “Music at Incarnate Word”

 

 

This month we have a special double-header weekend of Music Series events.

Friday, December 12th at 7:00 p.m., Music at Incarnate Word welcomes Publick Musick in a presentation called “A German Baroque Christmas.” This program will feature some of the finest works of the generations before Bach and Handel, performed by five solo voices and a small instrumental ensemble, all specialists in the field of early music.

The program will include music from J. H. Schein’s masterwork “Israels Brünnlein”; a rarely heard setting of the beloved chorale tune “Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern” by Thomas Selle; Buxtehude’s joyful “In Dulci Jubilo”; the gorgeous “Rorate Coeli” by Schütz, and more!

The audience will be invited to sing along in select chorales, in beautiful settings by J. H. Schein and J. Crüger. Because of the special nature of this event, tickets will be sold at the door for $15 for adults and $10 for students. Join us for a pre-concert talk at 6:15 p.m.

Sunday, December 14th at 7:00 p.m., Incarnate Word presents its annual Advent Lessons and Carols service. Based upon the chorale tune “Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland,” this year’s program features choral music spanning the past 500 years. I hope you will join us for one or both of these Music Series events!
