Cappella Romana (FB) presents:

Venice in the East: Renaissance Crete

Italy meets Greece in Venice in the East, a sonic exploration of the Greek Islands when they were ruled by the Venetian empire. Cappella Romana is reviving Renaissance music from Crete, celebrating the island’s historical significance as a vibrant hub for Greco-Italian culture.

The program features thrilling Greek and Latin music for Eastertide, including a boisterous rendition of “Christos anesti” (“Christ is risen”) for full choir. Alexander Lingas, Cappella Romana’s music director and founder, conducts.

Venice in the East is a commission of the Utrecht Early Music Festival (Netherlands), the largest early music festival in the world, where it was premiered by Cappella Romana in 2016.

Learn more about the music of Venice in the East at a free pre-concert lecture and discussion, one hour prior to each performance.
