UConn Music Professor’s Ensemble Praised in The New York Times

Ensemble Origo, directed by UConn Music Department Head Eric Rice, was mentioned in an extensive New York Times article on the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation by music critic James Oestreich:
“Luther himself had a strong musical connection, and I determined to use the 2017 milestone to try to come to terms with this side of him through reading and listening. To prepare for my pilgrimage to Minnesota, I attended several Reformation concerts in New York. An especially fine one in September, by the Connecticut-based Ensemble Origo, offered a hypothetical reconstruction of Luther’s German Mass of about 1530, built on a ‘Missa de Beata Virgine’ by Josquin des Prez, one of his favorite composers.”
