These exciting finale concerts of San Francisco Renaissance Voices (Katherine McKee, Music Director) 2015-16 Season, "The Grand Tour," features works for multiple choirs - a musical sampler from across Europe including Scotland, Italy, Germany, Spain & the Lowlands.  Our Grand Promenade around Europe will include a northerly jaunt into Scotland, with excerpts from Robert Carver's Missa dum Sacrum Mysterium. On the Continent we'll visit the lowlands for Josquin's 24 voice motet Qui habitat & music by exiled Englishman Peter Philips, & tour Germany & Austria for works by Handel, Hassler, & Praetorius.  The southern leg of our journey will include the brilliance of Spanish composers Victoria, Raval, & Guerrero, as well as favorites by that quintessential international genius Orlando di Lasso, including O la, o che bon eccho. ...

We're delighted to be joined on our February 20 concert for a piece with SFRVThe Next Generation, our newly formed young performers choir of students 12-17 years of age making their debut under our Director of Educational Programs, Derek Tam."
