Sacred and Profane: A German’s Italianate Songs of Life and Love

Ensemble VIII presents “Sacred and Profane: A German’s Italianate Songs of Life and Love” on Jan. 24 at Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church and Jan. 25 at St. Louis Catholic Church Chapel. Both concerts begin at 7:30 p.m.

From the 16th to 18th centuries, eager composers from Germany and France would journey from their native lands to Venice and Rome to study with the great Italian masters. Credited with solidifying the Italian practice within a uniquely German style, Heinrich Schütz’s Cantiones Sacre and Italian Madrigals collections are masterpieces of harmonic genius and thrilling vocal sonority.
