Concert: L'Histoire d'Ys, A Virtual Legend — The Story of Y's
Saturday, June 5, 2021Jun 5, 2021, 7:00pm at Online Event (Link in description)
Tickets: $12 per family

An online event taken from a concert performed by the Medieval Women's Choir and narrated by artistic director Eric Mentzel . From Plato’s description of Atlantis to Lerner and Loewe’s portrayal of Brigadoon, the idea of the lost city has captured the human imagination across millennia. One of the most compelling is the story of Ys, a city built in the early middle ages behind sturdy dykes and sea walls on the coast of Brittany. It quickly became a center of sin and debauchery and was eventually, in an act of divine retribution, reclaimed by the sea. For this production, we use archival recordings from our musical telling of the “Histoire d’Ys,” combined with a newly created narrative and a rich tapestry of images both ancient and modern to bring this medieval legend to life.

In 2002, the tradition of a "Rolling Requiem" to commemorate the events of 9/11/2001 began. The Vashon Island Chorale continues that tradition on 9/11/2021. This concert also represents the Chorale's return from the covid-enforced quarantine.

Concert: PORTUGUESE POLYPHONY (Online)
Friday, September 10, 2021Sep 10, 2021, 7:00pm at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: Free-will offering only

By the 17th century, the transition to the Baroque style was well underway. Portuguese Renaissance composers, however, were not quick to change with the times. Rather than adopting Baroque writing techniques, they kept developing the Renaissance style and incorporated new harmonic flavors from the emerging Baroque movement, yielding some of the most exotic sounding Renaissance motets of the era. This program features Duarte Lôbo, Filipe de Magalhães, and Manuel Cardoso. Join us online for this program of music from the golden age of Portuguese polyphony, recorded and filmed at St. James Cathedral.

We close with Josquin's exquisitely beautiful 'Ave Maria.' Come celebrate with us!

In te Domine speravi
Virgo prudentissima
Nunc dimittis
