    The season finale brings to light Baroque-era gems, both timeless and rare. Hear one of J.S. Bach’s most beautifully faceted masterworks alongside newly unearthed jewels by his contemporaries. Be mesmerized by the intricate polyphony of prolific composer Isabella Leonarda, discover the harmonic inventiveness of Czech composer Jan Dismas Zelenka’s Dixit Dominus (in a new modern edition by former Coro Allegro member Michael Driscoll), and enjoy the expressive and elegant offertory from "la virtuosa di Venezia" Anna Bon. Our special guests will be members of the internationally acclaimed La Donna Musicale. Founded and directed by music scholar and viola da gambist Laury Gutiérrez, the ensemble performs on period instruments with historical performance practices and is devoted exclusively to the discovery, preservation, and promotion of music by women composers. J.S. Bach: Jesu, Meine Freude, BWV 227
    Isabella Leonarda: Motets
    Jan Dismas Zelenka: Dixit Dominus
    Anna Bon: Offertorium, Ardete amore
