Denison's Collegium Musicum Presents First Fall Concert
Date of Event: October 18, 2002
Posted: October 7, 2002
Denison University's vocal ensemble for early music, the Collegium Musicum, will perform its first concert of the season at 8 p.m. on Friday (Oct. 18) in Swasey Chapel.
The program features J.S. Bach's motet "Lobet den Herrn, allen Heiden" BVW 230 with string quartet from the Denison Orchestra. "Swasey Chapel is a beautiful setting for the intricate lines of J.S. Bach," says Christine Mortine, director of the group. "The motet is rich in fugal movement and explosive text which literally come to dancing life in Swasey Chapel's acoustics." Also on the program will be Praetorius's "Lobet den Herren" and Palestrina's "Exultate Deo."
Mortine has taken over as director of the 15-member Collegium Musicum this year. The concert is free and open to the public.
