In 2017, the world celebrates the 500th anniversary of the symbolic start of the Reformation, when Luther nailed his famous 95 theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenburg. Cappella 500th anniversary of the symbolic start of the Reformation, when Luther nailed his famous 95 theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenburg. Cappella Pratensis marks this year with a program devoted to the very first music of the Protestant movement. The program will show that Luther retained much more of the liturgical and musical tradition than is normally assumed.
Cappella Pratensis specializes in the music of JosquinDesprez and other polyphonists from the 15th and 16th centuries. The ensemble brings continuous models with quirky programs and original interpretations, which are based on scientific research sources. As was common in the Renaissance, the singers of Cappella Pratensis are often around a central music stand. They sing of facsimile editions of original choir books. The ensemble was founded in 1987 and is now under the artistic direction of singer and conductor Stratton Bull.
Cappella Pratensis will also be holding a free workshop on Thursday, October 19th at 5:30pm entitled Singing from a Renaissance Choirbook.
