Description

Cipriano de Rore was a titan of the mid-16th century and one of the most influential composers of his time, with one foot in his native Flanders and one in his adopted homeland Italy. His music was progressive and experimental, epitomizing the changing forms of the sacred polyphonic motet & secular Italian madrigal, which he seamlessly interchanged. Rore’s works were widely considered to be the most expressive and eloquent of his day. Join us as we delve into his remarkable music from the Magnificent Choirbook of Albrecht V and the realm of infinite beauty it inspired. We also offer works on similar texts by composers Josquin, Palestrina, Byrd and others.
- Preconcert lecture at 2:15pm, with Anne Lyman and Pat Rice, for a discussion of music manuscripts and artistry, including a visual presentation.
