Canonici: Consort of Voices

University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA

Presented by the Jacobsen Series

MUSICA ANTIQUA features a polyphony from England and the Low Countries, including motets and mass settings sung in cathedrals to love songs sung in noble courts. Sacred works such as Josquin’s Missa La Sol Fa Re Mi and Tallis’s Sancte Deus will be sung alongside French chansons such as Janequin’s playful Le Chant des Oiseaux and English madrigals such as Wilbye’s mournful Weep, Weep, Mine Eyes. The concert includes commentary about the specific pieces of music, the lives of the composers, and the place of music in Renaissance culture.
