A festive christmas concert of motets, songs and instrumental settings, telling about the coming Saviour and his birth. A 17th century christmas night in Augsburg.
It is part and parcel of the close relationship to Augsburg shared by all of the featured composers that the concerns of both Christian faiths, the Catholic and the Protestant, are taken into account in their music.
The music as such was considered tob e above and beyond denomination. Music in ist striving for “harmony“ overcomes all human conflict with the promise of the eternal peace of Christmas, disclosed by the angel’s hymn of the biblical Annuciation: “Et in terra pax hominibus“ .
FAMA - Forum Alte Musik Augsburg (Augsburg Early Music Forum) promotes the
research, performance and dissemination of early music in the Augsburg cultural area.
We organize the maxKONZERTE, an early music concert series, predominantly in appropriate historical rooms. We curate and organise the Festival Alte Musik Augsburg.
We work on the indexing of unknown musical and historical sources and document them in CD recordings. We cooperate with the art collections and museums of the city of Augsburg. We conduct public relations work through lectures, workshops and guided tours.
