Dreams and Imaginations: Poeticall Musicke - Songs from Around 1600 by Robert Jones & Tobias Hume

Closely related to the lute repertoire of the era, English music for the lyra viol imitates the playing of polyphonic music on a single instrument.

Il Gioco Della Cieca - Madrigals, Canzoni & Villanelle for Singing and Playing

The Swiss quintet Concerto di Margherita combines instrumental play on theorbo, viola da gamba, Baroque guitar, harp, and lute with the sound of their own voices to stage a fable about the (in)visibility of love. They will perform works by Italian composers from the 16th and 17th centuries, including Francesca Caccini, Sigismondo d'India, and Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger. This concert's central theme revolves around the confusions of lovers who, despite their connection, often grope in the dark like in a game of "Blind Man's Bluff."

Cipriano de Rore and Orlando di Lasso - Meeting of Two Court Kapellmeisters

The sibylline prophecies, interpreted as pre-Christian prophecies since the Middle Ages, form the basis of Orlando di Lasso's collection "Prophetiae Sibyllarum," featuring twelve four-voice motets. With bold intervals and chromatic sequences, this collection ranks among the most fascinating works of the late Renaissance. In the magnificent Antiquarium of the Residenz, the motet cycle, in combination with Cipriano de Rore's "Missa Doulce Mémoire," unfolds its full splendor through the male ensemble of the Augsburg Cathedral Choirboys.
