Point, Counterpoint, Dance!
Sixteenth-century exploration and settlement in Florida took place against a background of religious conflict in Europe which also resulted in musical innovation. Our program will include music loved by Martin Luther, who set off the Reformation 500 years ago this October. We will provide a taste of the new style in Catholic music influenced by the ideas of the Counter-Reformation. We will also offer some of the products of the flourishing music publishers, music by and for those who skirted, avoided or compromised with the religious polarities.
