{CANCELED} SoHIP 2017: 7 Hills Renaissance Wind Band - Juxtapositions

  • First Lutheran Church 299 Berkeley Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States (map)

UPDATE - JUNE 20, 2017 - Due to a death in the family these concerts have been canceled.

This Somerville-based ensemble explores the ways that composers took secular tunes and built sacred music around them, leading to juxtapositions that - at least to the modern mind - seem incongruous, irreverent, or strikingly resonant. The King on earth mingles with the King of Heaven, the monk's whore comes through the same window as the Holy Spirit, and the soldier readying himself for war lies alongside the Lamb of God.
