New Amsterdam Singers begins the season with music of hope and praise from composers both familiar and lesser known, including William Byrd, Heinrich Schütz, and Dietrich Buxtehude. We’ll return to a favorite motet by J.S. Bach, Lobet den Herrn, and perform works by the Italian Renaissance composer Salamone Rossi for the first time, presenting two of his psalm settings in Hebrew. The 20th and 21st centuries are represented by Czech composer Petr Eben, Ēriks Ešenwalds of Latvia, and Americans John Chorbajian and Zanaida Robles.
