Mark Duley and Resurgam Celebrate Musical Legacy of Martin Luther

Series of three concerts takes place at Trinity College this February.

On 11, 15 and 18 February, Resurgam will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation with a mini-series of concerts at The Chapel in Trinity College Dublin.

Joining the Director Mark Duley and Resurgam will be Jörg Jacobi (harpsichord and organ), Israel Golani (theorbo), Sarah Groser (violone) and Carina Drury (cello).

The three concerts explore the musical legacy of the chorales of Martin Luther, in particular in Baroque music directly inspired by and based on them. The centrepiece of every concert is one of the Liedmasses by Georg Philipp Telemann, each based upon a chorale by Luther.

On Saturday 11 February, the concert will feature Telemann’s Missa super Ein Kindelein so löbelich; motets by composers from Saxony and Thuringia; J.S. Bach’s Lobet den Herrn alle Heiden; and organ works by Buxtehude and Pachelbel.

The performance on 15 February features Telemann’s Missa super Christ lag in Todesbanden; cantatas on the same chorale by J.S. Bach and Johann Kuhnau, Bach’s predecessor at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig; and organ works by Bach and Kuhnau.

And on Saturday 18 February the concert features Telemann’s Missa super Es wolle Gott uns gnädig sein; motets by J.S. Bach and Johann Friedrich Doles, Bach’s successor at the Thomaskirche; and organ works by Bach.

Tickets are €20/€10, and a series ticket is €50. For further details, and to purchase tickets, visit
