Laudes for Holy Thursday with fidel, bells and chant (Del dolçissimo segnore, Piange Maria, Amor dolçe, Laudato si)
Stories from the Bible (Last Supper, The feeding of the 5.000, Die widow from Sarepta etc.) and from Shalom Ben Chorin’s “Brother Jesus“
Images of food and drinks crop up throughout the New Testament – from the Wedding at Kana to the Last Supper. In his book “Brother Jesus“, Shalom Ben Chorin described how Jesus followed the Jewish traditions at festive get-togethers. Passages from these source texts are the ingredients for Julia Stemberger’s panorama of meals in biblical times –epitomised by dishes like flat bread and dried fish. We don’t know what music was played at meal times in Galilee at the time of Jesus, but we do know how the Italian Franciscans in the Middle Ages praised Jesus in their “laude“. They too knew what it means to travel in poverty and depend upon the hospitality of others.
Since its foundation in 2004, the women’s ensemble Ars Choralis Coeln and their conductor Maria Jonas have established a name for themselves in the international scene of medieval music. They have played at various festivals, including the Montalbane festival, the styriarte festival, the MDR Musiksommer, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival and the Festival Voix et Route Romane.
Julia Stemberger, born in Vienna, time and again demonstrates her theatrical versatility in a variety of genres ranging from drama and thriller to comedy and film adaptations of literature. In addition to her work as an actress, she has devoted herself to music.
