The program will include the ecstatic Ave Generosa by the eleventh century mystic, philosopher, herbalist, abbess, composer and poet Hildegard von Bingen for two sopranos unaccompanied as well as the intoxicating harmonies of Claudio Monteverdi's music for two sopranos and basso continuo.  Soprano Jess Petrus will be featured on "Le mort de Didon" (The Death of Dido) by French composer Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Mont├ęclair.  The instrumentalists get to shine on a "dancy" trio sonata by Danish/German baroque composer Dieterich Buxtehude.
