Gamesmanship, Eloquence, and Surprise in the Renaissance

Alexander Blachly, Guest Conductor

Of the hundreds of works performed by Alexander Blachly’s ensemble Pomerium over the course of 43 years, this program contains a selection of his favorites by some of the leading composers of the Renaissance, from Josquin Desprez, the great master of imitative polyphony and musical canons, and Henricus Isaac, famed wizard of counterpoint, to Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, and the uncannily modern, tortured genius Carlo Gesualdo. Following faculty appointments to Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania among others, Mr. Blachly became Director of Choral Music at the University of Notre Dame in 1993.



Ample free parking is available to all patrons in the main parking lot of the church.

The concert will be held in the sanctuary of the church.
