The Piping Rock Singers: Crist and Sainte Marie (at St.Thomas' Episcopal Church)
November 30, 2012
The Piping Rock Singers present Crist and Sainte Marie, a Concert of Medieval and Renaissance Advent and Christmas Music. Performances November 30th and December 9th.
Directed by Kevin Clarke, this music includes some of the most beautiful sacred early music from the most simple chant of St. Godric, for which the concert is named, to the celebratory and complex This Day Christ Was Born by William Byrd, to Francisco Guerrero's antiphonal twelve-voiced Duo Seraphim Clamabant.
Musical selections include:
Josquin des Prez' Ave Maria,
St. Godric's Crist and Sainte Marie,
Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck's Hodie Christus Natus Est,
William Byrd's This Day Christ Was Born
and many others.
