Description

Professional chorus.

Maine's only professional early music ensemble features primarily choral works with a mix of a cappella and accompanied pieces on period instruments that include, viola da gamba, lute, theorbo, baroque oboe, baroque violin, and recorders. Composed of northern New England's finest singers and accompanying instrumentalists, this ensemble has gained a reputation for excellence and elegant chamber music, especially in the a cappella tradition. The Schola presents enthusiastic audiences with literature that is seldom heard, including motets from such masters as Dufay, Victoria, Josquin Des Prez and William Byrd. There is often a special attention given to the great predecessor to Bach: Heinrich Schütz. The goals of the St Mary Schola are to provide the finest early music literature to New England audiences and promote professional vocal ensemble singing at the highest level.
