Welcome to Magnificat's Blog
Welcome to Magnificat’s blog, which I intend to post information about Magnificat programs – notes about the music we will be performing and about the individual musicians who will be performing it. Often in the process of preparing programs I find myself making connections and discoveries that I would like to share with the audiences that will be hearing the music.
Only so much can make its way into program notes and pre-concert lectures, so I hope this weblog will give Magnificat’s supporters and anyone interested in the music and culture of the seventeenth century a way to enrich their experience of our concerts and Baroque music in general. I suspect that sooner or later other topics will make their way into the discussions here but my intention is to focus on music. My first project will be a running commentary on Magnificat’s preparation for our first set of concerts, which will be on the weekend of September 30-October 2.
