2011: Josquin’s Playlist / Armada

Winter 2011: Josquin’s Playlist

josquin_playlist
Convivium’s winter concert features Renaissance works, celebrated in their own time, that also endured – in one form or another – into later decades and centuries.  We’ll explore how Josquin, Ockeghem, Arcadelt and others capitalized on popular pieces by using them as the framework for entirely new compositions, or by reworking earlier settings to suit changing tastes.

 

Josquin’s Playlist Concert Program

 

“…Melodies rang clear. Full awareness of harmonies, one by one, and the chorus’s unyielding focus constantly caused this listener to admire such extraordinary accomplishment…I was happy to discover this committed ensemble.”

— David Patterson, reviewing Josquin’s Playlist in the
    Boston Musical Intelligencer, January 17, 2011.

Spring 2011: Armada

Armada2010

In 1588 the kingdoms of England and Spain engaged in one of the most famous naval battles in European history.  These two powerful monarchs – Elizabeth I and Philip II – both embellished their courts with some of the finest music from the period.  Convivium will offer selections from the repertoire from both nations, including works by Byrd, Morley, Victoria, and Guerrero.
