Listen to a range of compositions reflecting the diverse vocal manifestations of early modern music on our Voices of Reform digital project page.

This performance is part of Religious Change, 1450 - 1700, a multidisciplinary project exploring how religion and print made the medieval world modern. The project is generously supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

This program is also supported by a grant from the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany.
