Distant Bells Sat Apr 25


Saint Ignatius Catholic Church | 740 North Calvert Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21202

Hear a 22-year-old Handel composing in a fiery Italian style during his sojourn among the campanili of Rome, and Vivaldi's most beloved choral work, written in the shadow of the towering San Marco belfry. Our finale is a sublime example of tintinnabuli, Arvo Pärt's compositional technique in which he transforms the conventions of chant into a revolutionary contemporary idiom.
