On the occasion of Gdańsk Days, 23-25 May 2020, we would like to welcome you to listen to the motet Surge, propera by Andreas Hakenberger, an eminent Gdańsk composer from the late Renaissance and early Baroque. The piece’s lyrics come from the Old Testament Song of Songs and begins with the call “Rise up, my beloved, my fair one, and come away.” It was recorded at a concert in Artus’ Court on 16 April 2012, part of the Gdańsk Music Festival.
