In the sixteenth century at St. Mark’s in Venice, composers developed a new style of music that used two choirs singing in alternation. Some of the sublime and ethereal pieces to emerge from this tradition, including works by Gabrieli and Praetorius, will be performed by the Bach Choir and the Early Music Ensemble from Sam Houston State University.
