The Lion and The Lamb: The Jewish Baroque
La Fiocco, the Bucks-County based period music ensemble, will present a program entitled “The Lion & the Lamb: The Jewish Baroque.” The concert will present music written by Salamone Rossi (c. 1570-c. 1630), the leading Jewish composer of early 17th-century Italy; a Hebrew vocal work of Carlo Grossi, commissioned by the Venetian Jewish confraternity of the “Watchmen of the Dawn” ca. 1680, a cantata by Louis Saladin written for a circumcision in Provence, France, also around 1680, and works based on the Book of Judges and the Book of Esther by Giacomo Carissimi (1605-1674) and George Frideric Handel (1685-1759).

For this special concert, La Fiocco will be joined by Mostly Motets, a Bucks County-based vocal ensemble that specializes in music of the Renaissance and Baroque. La Fiocco’s vocal soloists are Nicole Renna, soprano; Joseph Hill, countertenor; David Kellett, tenor; and Grant Mech, bass. The ensemble will include baroque violins, viola, cello, viola da gamba, recorders, baroque oboe, harpsichord, theorbo, and baroque harp, and is led by Lewis Reece Baratz, artistic director. Instrumentalists are coming from North Carolina, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania for this special event.

Please joint us.
