The British Are Coming: A Cultural Revolution in Germany

Music Director: Patricia Ann Neely 

Location: Grace Church School, NYC

“The English Invasion!” is an exploration of the influence of English composers on 17th century North German music. While a great many revolutions have had significant political repercussions, others have made their impact on a cultural and social level. John Dowland, William Brade, and Thomas Simpson, brought their compositional style to North Germany in the early 17th century and their influence was evident shortly thereafter in the works of composers such as Nicholas Bleier, Johann Schultz, Johann Schop, Johann Sommer and more.
