(US) San Francisco Renaissance Voices (SFRV) Concert: "Misa O Quam Gloriosum" (Tomás Luis de Victoria) (21, 27, 28 Oct 2012)

Contributed by Admin on Oct 14, 2012

Locations:

Sunday, October 21: All Saints' Episcopal Church, 555 Waverley, Palo Alto
Saturday, October 27: Seventh Avenue Presbyterian Church, 1329 Seventh Avenue, San Francisco

San Francisco Renaissance Voices annual Office of the Dead Concert this year commemorates All Saints Day with a performance of Tomás Luis de Victoria’s (1548-1611) hauntingly beautiful Misa O Quam Gloriosum (O How Glorious is the Kingdom Mass) including his motet of the same name upon which the mass is based with other music by Trombetti, Byrd, Esquivel and others.  Unlike his more prolific contemporaries Victoria focused on composing music that was liturgical and devotional.  This parody mass, written in the mixolydian mode, perfectly illustrates this and is considered one of his best being described by the British musicologist Donald Tovey as "one of the most perfect ever written."  We are delighted to be joined by guest conductor Don Scott Carpenter of American Bach Soloists.
