Guitarists and vocalists Liamna Pestana and Daniel Yost perform 17th and 18th century music of colonial Latin America and Spain. The encounters and mixtures in this era in Latin America among the Spanish, the Portuguese, indigenous people and sub-Saharan Africans created an extraordinarily complex hybrid musical culture. Ms. Pestana, a native of Cuba, and Mr. Yost, an Argentinian, husband and wife, recently arrived in the U.S. from Argentina, where both had been active in performing and teaching this music. The program includes works by Baltasar Jaime Martinez Compañón, Gaspar Sanz, and Fray Gregorio de Zuola.

Renaissance chamber choral delights from the pen of the "divin Orlando," the most highly-regarded composer of the late 16th century. Born in the Netherlands around 1532, Lasso spent his adolescence and early adulthood in Italy, holding as a very young man important musical appointments in Naples and Rome. At about the age of 24 he joined the court of the Duke of Bavaria, in whose service he remained for 38 years until his death in 1594. He lived a cosmopolitan life, traveling widely in Europe, achieving great fame as a composer in his own lifetime, and attracting visitors and pupils to Munich. Lasso composed over 2,000 choral and vocal works, both sacred and secular. Schola's March 11 program includes, among other Lasso works, the 5th of his Penitential Psalms, his Magnificat super Ancor che col partire, and his paean to music, Musica, Deo donum optimi.
