19th Montana Early Music Festival — 
A Spanish Epiphany Celebration

Welcome the Three Wise Men (Tres Reyes) in glorious Spanish style! Musikanten Montana is excited to present Francisc Valls’ “Missa Scala Aretina,” written in 1702 for the Cathedral of Barcelona, where the Spanish composer was assistant organist.  Expanding the Mass, which is exuberantly scored for four choirs of singers, instruments and continuo, the concert will include motets and instrumental works of Victoria, Morales, Guerrero and other Spanish Renaissance and Early Baroque composers, as well as the Propers and scriptures for the Feast Day, all to re-create a festive Catalan Celebration of the Epiphany.
