O Maria! Mother and Warrior


Celebrate mother’s day with us!

La Donna Musicale presents a concert of Italian Baroque women composers.

The program features their settings of prayers to the Virgin, a powerful Stabat Mater, and a dialogue between Mary and Eve the mother of God and the mother of humankind. It also includes a motet for two voices that illustrates the martyrdom and invincibility of St. Christina. Vocal music will be interspersed with instrumental music by Isabella Leonarda and others.

Music by Francesca Caccini, Chiara Margarita Cozzolani, Isabella Leonarda, Maria Xaviera Peruchona, Lucrezia Vizzana, and others.
