ARTS ON ALEXANDER PRESENTS
THE GESUALDO SIX: ENGLISH MOTETS
November 12 at 7:30 p.m. | Redeemer Presbyterian Church
English Motets: music of William Bryd, John Sheppard, Thomas Tallis, Thomas Weelkes, and others!
During the Renaissance, musical composition flourished, but it was a time of great change, fueled by religious division. Arts on Alexander presents The Gesualdo Six in a program that traces music written by some of the English Renaissance masters over a period of two hundred years, encompassing florid medieval-sounding works by Sheppard and Forest, intricately woven polyphonic works by Tallis and Byrd, and the beautiful simplicity of Tomkins and White.
There will be a complimentary wine reception following the concert.
Friday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m.
The Gesualdo Six is an award-winning British vocal ensemble comprising some of the UK’s finest consort singers, directed by Owain Park. Praised for their imaginative programming and impeccable blend, the ensemble formed in 2014 for a performance of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae Responsories in Cambridge and has gone on to perform at numerous major festivals across the UK, Europe, North America, and Australia. Notable highlights include a concert as part of the distinguished Deutschlandradio Debut Series and collaborations with the Brodsky Quartet, London Mozart Players, Luxmuralis, William Barton, and Matilda Lloyd.
