John Conducting Polyhymnia


Reges Hispaniae

Music by Nicolas Gombert and Philippe Rogier

Charles V and Phillip II in succession ruled one of the most powerful empires of Renaissance Europe and the New World. Theirs was a court that colonized a continent and fought the powers of the Lutheran Reformation. Naturally, the music of their chapels reflected their image and power. Join Polyhymnia for a concert of the best music of the Spanish Hapsburgs, as rich and magnificent as the monarchs that commissioned them.

John Bradley, conductor

 

Saturday, November 17 at 8 pm

Pre-Concert Lecture at 7 pm

Tickets: $20-$30

The Church of St. Ignatius of Antioch, 552 West End Avenue (entrance is on West 87th Street), Manhattan
