The program is entitled 'Miserere mei' after the great psalm that ushers in this season and will feature choral, soloists and period instruments. Josquin des Pres haunting Miserere mei for 5 part chorus is coupled with a transcendental setting by the English master Thomas Tallis. The perfect acoustic naves of St. Luke's and St. Mary's will resonate with motets by Schütz and Gesualdo.
