Biber Vespers, December 20th

Upcoming: Imperial Splendor at Salzburg Cathedral in December

Salzburg Cathedral in the 1700s

Simon Carrington directs the Biber Vespers Friday, December 20th at 8 pm, First Lutheran Church

Simon Carrington reprises his acclaimed 2004 performance of the Biber Vesperae Longiores ac breviores with Canto Armonico in Boston, in a new setting for the season of Advent.

Evoking the baroque splendor of Salzburg Cathedral where Heinrich Biber spent much of his career, the music features elaborate and virtuosic solos for voices and strings by Biber and his contemporaries, including the talented Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I.
