Drei schöne Ding sind – Music for the 500th Anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses

Sunday, February 5, 2017 4:00 p.m.
Mt. Olive Lutheran Church
Music of Heinrich Isaac (1450-1514), Josquin des Prez (1455-1521) and Johann Hermann Schein (1586-1630)

In this year, Christians worldwide commemorate the 500th Anniversary of Luther’s reformation. Des Prez and Isaac were contemporaries of Luther; he highly regarded them both, especially Josquin. Johann Schein was the next generation of that tradition.

A reception follows the concert in the church’s Chapel Lounge.

This concert is part of Mount Olive’s Music & Fine Arts Series, and was commissioned by Cantor David Cherwien. The Music & Fine Arts Series is a gift from Mount Olive’s members and friends to the Twin Cities community. Please visit their website for more information on other offerings in the Series this season.
