Enjoy traditional Latin texts by low countries composers: Ave Maria by Josquin des Pres, Hodie Christus Natus Est by Sweelinck, and O Magnum Mysterium by Willaert. Then discover traditional Dutch carols, all performed in the historic West End Collegiate Church, which traces its origins to New Amsterdam in 1628. This gem of a building on the Upper West side was constructed in 1893 and is styled after 17th century buildings of Haarlem and Amsterdam. It is adorned with a carved oak pulpit and Tiffany studio windows.
Our 18th Season will also feature:
- New Music for New York – Saturday March 10, 2018
