First Church of Christ Congregational, North Conway.
Admission is a suggested donation of $10

The program will feature "Masterworks of Lent" - see
'Masterworks of Lent'
This Lenten program will feature some sublime music by
Gesulado: his ‘Tenebarae factae sunt’ from
Holy Week. These motets feature some of his most daring
harmonies that powerfully depict the last hours of Christ’s
Gesualdo pieces will be coupled with later masterworks
that are in the ‘a cappella’ tradition: a
sublime motet by Josef Rheinberger and the famous ‘Beati
Quorum Via’ by C. V. Stanford.
great Bach cantata arias from ‘Ich habe genug’
and ‘Vergnügte Ruh’ and a Handel aria
from ‘Theodora’ will also be included.
final work will be ‘Jona,’ an early oratorio
by the Italian master Carissimi. ‘Jona’ brilliantly
brings to life Jonah’s story, complete with period
instruments, sea storms and sea monsters.
The St Mary Schola, based at the Episcopal Church of Saint
Mary the Virgin in Falmouth, Maine, is a professional early
music ensemble devoted to the performance of master works
from the medieval, renaissance and baroque eras. Composed
of northern New England's finest singers and accompanying
instrumentalists, this ensemble has gained a reputation
for excellence and elegant chamber music, especially in
the a cappella tradition.
The Schola presents enthusiastic audiences with literature
that is seldom heard, including motets from such masters
as Dufay, Victoria, Josquin Des Prez and William Byrd. There
is often a special attention given to the great predecessor
to Bach: Heinrich Schütz. The goals of the Saint Mary
Schola are to provide the finest early music literature
to New England audiences and promote professional vocal
ensemble singing at the highest level.

White Mountain Musical Art’s purpose in presenting live musical
performances throughout the year is to awaken contemporary audiences
to the vitality of 17th - 20th century music through historically
informed performance of both familiar and unknown works - - as well
as current, contemporary music performances from time to time. We
hope through live performances, and educational programs to foster
an awareness and appreciation of this music creating a cultural experience
both for the immediate Mt. Washington Valley community and for the
greater population of New Hampshire’s “North Country”.
