alto Jennifer Jakubowski can't wait to share Orlande de Lassus's "Timor et tremor" at APERI ANIMAM's upcoming concerts.
“the piece is very powerful in both its sound and meaning. the text speaks of the faith that endures despite death’s shades surrounding you and the belief that the Lord will continue to watch over and have mercy upon you. while i am not religious, this ultimate profession of faith is very compelling, especially in how de Lassus portrays it musically in the final section of the piece.”
hear this piece and more on 3/4 nov at Pro Defunctis: music for the dead. come and open your soul.

The one thing our world yearns for right now, is peace. Peace within society, and most importantly peace within ourselves. We get lost in the day to day shuffle of things, we often forget to take the time and find that peace to ease our minds and give us the reassurance we need.
Last night, we were able to give everyone that moment of peace with this song, a song that will always hold a special place I all of our hearts.
There’s something beautiful in knowing that you are able to make a lasting impact on a strangers life, even if it’s just for the duration of a single song. We are already fortunate enough to be able to create and share our love for music with each other, but to have the ability to spread that message to a complete stranger is a blessing I will always cherish. .
Orlande de Lassus (ca. 1532-1594) was a Franco-Flemish composer of the Renaissance era. his versatile, international style is demonstrated in the variety of works he wrote in numerous languages. de Lassus is known for the great care he took in portraying the textual meaning of the music, which foreshadowed the Baroque style of the 17th century. he wrote over two thousand compositions, including nearly five hundred Latin motets.
APERI ANIMAM is performing one of de Lassus's motets (Timor et tremor) at Pro Defunctis: music for the dead on 3/4 nov.
