Tactus presents:  New Beginnings Motets and madrigals of Isaac, Palestrina, Monteverdi, and others.

All undertakings big and small germinate from ideas. Join Tactus of San Francisco for our debut concert, as we present Renaissance choral motets and madrigal about New Beginnings: from the anticipation of dawn to the founding of the Church. Our offerings range from the celestially serene music of Post-Tridentine Roman composer Palestrina, to the pictorial and lively madrigals of the “divino Claudio” Monteverdi. With organ interludes by Eugene Petrushansky, this free performance is part of the 2016 Berkeley Festival and Exhibition. Monday, 6 June 2016, 12-1 PM St Joseph of Arimathea Chapel Berkeley, CA – 94709
