Four Brandon University music professors will transport the audience back to the 17th-century baroque era during a concert Thursday in St. Matthew’s Cathedral.
The free noon-hour recital will feature singer Sarah Hall, Nancy Hennen on baroque flute, Kyung Kim on harpsichord and cellist Leanne Zacharias.
The program will include a cantata by Telemann, perhaps the most notable German composer, a bit younger than Bach; a suite by Philidor, a French musician and master chess player (he wrote the chess manual that was used for a full century); and vocal pieces by Purcell and Handel.
The concert, which runs from 12:15 p.m. to 12:45 p.m., is part of St. Matthew’s Te Deum recital series. The public is invited to bring a bag lunch, while tea and coffee are provided.
