A Remarkable Program of Latin Motets


Ad Jesum per Mariam
(To Jesus through Mary)

On Sunday, May 4th, at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, a program of Latin motets devoted to Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary, will be presented at Our Lady of the Atonement Church.

Written for soprano, alto, and continuo, these exquisite yet rarely performed works feature compositions by Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602-c.1677), a cloistered Benedictine nun, and Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643), a Catholic priest and one of the most influential composers in the history of music.

This is the final program in the seventh year of our Parish Music Series, and certainly an occasion not to be missed. A reception will follow in the St. John Paul II Library.
