Focus on Classics

With the Focus Choir of University and College Singers
Chloe Meyers & Elyssa Lefurgey-Smith, violins
Alexander Weimann & Natalie Mackie, continuo

Monteverdi and Schütz must have been soulmates. Monteverdi grew up in the rolling landscapes of Catholic Tuscany, while Schütz was in Protestant central Germany, but their musical forms and ideals are uncannily similar. Their gift for setting texts to music and enhancing the words made everything sound natural. Buxtehude, Mendelssohn and Brahms were also masters of breathing life into words.
