    Found: Music in the Age of Exploration (Cambridge)

    Convivium Musicum has been dedicated to concerts of uplifting beauty since 1987.


    "radiant and full of sound." - Christopher Marinuzzi, the Boston Musical Intelligencer.
    "a knack for programming." - James Oestreich, the ArtsBeat blog of The New York Times
    “the kind of transforming experience that concert junkies are always seeking.” - Early Music America


    Join Convivium Musicum as we explore the theme of "Found" in Renaissance works. The age of European exploration spread the Renaissance polyphonic tradition, especially in its Iberian flavor, as far as the New World: both its techniques (via manuscripts) and, in some cases, its practitioners: European composers who settled in New Spain. Convivium presents a program of works from both sides of the Atlantic: Guerrero, Victoria, Franco and more. 


    Maria Magdalena, Francisco Guerrero (1528 - 1599)
    Magnificat Quinti, Toni Hernando Franco (1532 - 1585)
    O Doctor optime, Guerrero
    Vidi aquam Tomas, Luis de Victoria (c. 1548 - 1611)
    Andreas Christi famulus, Cristobal de Morales (c. 1500 - 1553)
    Exsultate Justi in Domino, Juan Gutierrez de Padilla (c. 1595 - 1664)
    Lamentations of Jeremiah, Guerrero
