Well-Tempered Baroque: May 12 - Telemann's Oratorios

May 12, 2017

Dr. Lewis Baratz introduces Telemann's celebratory cantatas written for 1724  Hamburgische Kapitänsmusik (The Militia Captians of Hamburg Annual Feast) and for the Feast of St. Michael in 1731.

For most of the 14th Century the papacy was situated in Avignon in the south of France.  The Avignonese popes were great patrons of the arts, especially music, where the liturgy for the mass and divine offices were influenced to a great degree by the practices of the Ars Nova.  On Friday night's Distant Mirror the ensemble Venance Fortunat and the choir of the University of Tours perform music from the popes' palace at Avignon.
