Domenico Zipoli, an Italian Baroque composer and Jesuit missionary, wrote his "Missa a San Ignacio" for use in missions throughout South America in the early 18th century, and so includes grand, reverential movements meant for the organ, choral, and various instruments. As part of "Performing History" — a four-day festival of concerts, masterclasses, and paper sessions, commemorating the 10th anniversary of Eastman's Italian Baroque Organ at the Memorial Art Gallery — Christ Church Schola Cantorum and Publick Musick will join organist Nathan Laube to re-create Zipoli's work in a beautiful, holy concert.
"Missa a San Ignacio" will be performed on Saturday, October 24, at the Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Avenue. 7:30 p.m. Free, but tickets are required. italian-baroque-organ-festival.ticketleap.com; esm.rochester.edu.
