      1568-Pieter-Bruegel-the-Elder-The-Peasant-Dance-Detail-bagpipeWe invite you to Gaude, mater Polonia: Music from Poland's Golden Age, our last concert of the season! If you’ve never heard of Polish composer Wacław z Szamotuł, we’re not surprised – but get ready for a real treat! Tom Zajac

      This concert brings you the gorgeous, rare, and important music of Poland’s great Renaissance composers. Consort favorite, Chicago native and Polish-American, Tom Zajac, leads us in this new repertoire, guaranteed to open your ears to new sounds.  

      The program will feature motets by Wacław z Szamotuł, Poland's greatest composer of the mid-16th-century, selections from the Melodie na Psałtery polski of 1580, which contains settings by Mikołaj Gomółka of all 150 psalms with paraphrases by Poland's greatest 16th-century poet, Jan Kochanowski. Also featured are Mass movements from the Missa Pulcherrima (Most Beautiful Mass) by the 17th-century master Bartłomiej Pękiel. 

      Featured musicians include soprano Ellen Hargis, David Douglass on violin & viola, Tom Zajac on recorders, flutes, sackbut, bagpipe, pipe & tabor, John Lenti on Renaissance lute & theorbo, Brandi Berry on violin, Jeremy Ward on bass violin, Matthew Dean, tenor, Eric Miranda, bass, Kayleen Sanchez, soprano, and Angela Young Smucker, alto.
