Musical May devotion

In Catholic tradition, the month of May is dedicated to the veneration of Mary. In so-called May devotions, the faithful offer their petitions to this greatest intercessor, turning to her as »comforter of the afflicted« and »model in difficult times«, as »healer of the sick« and »helper of Christians«. At the same time, Mary is venerated as the »most beautiful of women«, the Virgin, Mother of God and Queen of Heaven. On the last day of May, the month of bliss and Mary, Jean Rondeau and friends offer baroque »Mailancholie« in a bitter minor key. Each of the four musicians will perform works by a favorite composer for his or her instrument, and then unite at the cornerstones of the program to perform music by Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber, the author of the famous »Rosary Sonatas«. The keystone of this important collection with the monumental »Guardian Angel Passacaglia« is then also coherently enthroned in the center of their musical May devotion.
