Theses criticizing many of the teachings and practices of the Roman
Church at the time, an act that is regarded as the beginning of the
Protestant Reformation in Germany. This concert will feature music of
the various early reformation movements, not only in Germany, but also
France, the Netherlands, and England. It will also feature music of the
counter reformation, the Roman church's response to the reformation. A
special highlight will be the performance with orchestra of J.S. Bach's
Cantata 80 which is based on Luther's famous chorale tune Ein feste
Burg ist unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress is our God).

choir will look back over 40 years of performances in the Southern Tier
and bring to the stage some of the very favorite tunes from its vast
repertoire of part songs, madrigals, folk songs, and sacred music. With
help from past members as well as the current choir, conductor Bruce
Borton plans to put together a delightful bouquet of musical delights
from 1978 forward. The current choir will be inviting as many past
members as possible to join them in singing a few “old favorites.” It
should be a day full of fun, of great memories, and of familiar tunes.
Do you have a favorite Madrigal Choir song from the past? If so, let us know. We will
try to include it!
