  • THE GLORIOUS MYSTERIES: MUSIC OF BIBER AND LASSUSHeinrich Ignaz Franz van Biber (1664-1704), the preeminent violin virtuoso of the 17th-century and Kapellmeister of Salzburg’s beautiful baroque cathedral, left a body of extraordinary works for the violin, most notably his Mystery Sonatas (also called the Rosary Sonatas). St. Luke's resident baroque violinist Leah Nelson will present the set representing the “Glorious Mysteries” of the Rosary. The program will also include motets for the season by Renaissance master Orlande de Lassus.Leah Gale Nelson, violinChoir of St. Luke in the Fields, directed by David ShulerPre-concert lecture at 7 PM
