In the sixteenth century, all roads led to Prague – or from it. The city had long been an incubator for rich musical activity and was an important stop for composers from neighboring Poland, Slovenia, and Germany, but also from farther afield. Schola Antiqua’s program brings a fascinating cross-section of sacred vocal polyphony from this musical crossroads together – and to life. In-concert commentary by Erika Supria Honisch, Assistant Professor of Music History and Theory at Stony Brook University.
