Mak'hela, the Jewish Chorus of Western MA, in collaboration with the Five College Early Music Collegium, presents a concert that will transport you to a time long ago! Salamone Rossi (ca. 1570–1630) was an Italian Jewish composer during the late Renaissance/early Baroque. He revitalized ancient Jewish prayers with contemporary compositions, and in addition wrote many secular works. Rossi’s liturgical music is an intoxicating blend of traditional Hebrew prayer and quintessential Renaissance sounds. We will bring you a selection of his choral works, joined by instruments that would have originally accompanied them.
