Workshops/Festivals 2017: (UK) The Sixteen ~ Harry Christophers "The Choral Pilgrimage 2017" (16 Mar-25 Nov 2017)

Contributed by admin on Dec 10, 2016 - 12:26 PM

"Our 2017 Choral Pilgrimage tour contrasts the music of the "Prince of polyphony" Giovanni Pierluigi de Palestrina with the great 20th-century melodist Francis Poulenc."  ...

Poulenc’s choral music was all written after 1936, when the tragic death of a close friend led to a religious epiphany. Its seriousness and intensity contrast with his more frivolous secular style, but these works make perfect companion pieces for the pure counterpoint of the great Renaissance master, Palestrina. ...
