Tactus SF presents “Timor et Tremor – Songs in Time of Peril,” a 45-minute program of motets exploring how we navigate challenging times, such as heartbreak, uncertainty, and war. To what higher powers can we appeal when seized by “fear and trembling”? With the beautiful and powerful music of composers such as Byrd, Josquin, and Gesualdo, we explore Renaissance responses to peril in songs of lamentation, prayer, exhortation, resilience, and hope.
