Giovanni Paolo Colonna

On this edition of In the Mode, we will hear music by Bolognese composer Giovanni Paolo Colonna. He lived from 1637 to 1695 and was maestro de cappella at the church of San Petronio in Bologna for the last 20 years of his life where he wrote masses, motets and psalms for performance there, he was also an organist and organ builder.  We’ll hear the Houston Chamber Choir and orchestra perform his setting of psalm 126 Nisi Dominus and a Magnificat Robert Simpson conducts.
