Program

Regina Caeli Laetare

Mignarda Ensemble, Cleveland’s early music duo, is pleased to be joined by local musician José Gotera (baritone) and special guests from Chicago Francy Acosta, and José Luis Posada. All three guests are alumni of the Case Western Reserve program in Early Music. In this concert you will hear Spanish renaissance music featuring voices and lutes. The concert will highlight music of the season with sacred motets as well as four different settings of the Marian antiphon Regina cæli lætare by Franciso Guerrero (c.1528 – 1599), Cristóbal de Morales (c. 1500 – 1553), and Tomás Luis de Victoria (c.1548 – 1611). In addition to a cappella polyphony, the sublime sound of one or more lutes will feature prominently in the concert program, as was quite common in 16th-century Spanish liturgical music.
