Shenson Chamber Music Concert: ModernMedieval Trio of Voices
From: 07:30 PM to 09:30 PM
Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, formally of the acclaimed vocal quartet Anonymous 4, is joined by Martha Cluver and Eliza Bagg from the celebrated ensemble Roomful of Teeth to present programs that combine medieval chant and polyphony with new commissions and music from later eras.
Trio of Voices takes the vocal techniques developed by Anonymous 4 and combines them with a fresh programming approach. The Living Word features four of Hildegard of Bingens most ecstatic chants, including O Jerusalem and O Ecclesia, interwoven with new works by acclaimed composers Caroline Shaw, Caleb Burhans, Daniel Thomas Davis, and a world premiere by Joel Phillip Friedman. Horner-Kwiatek makes her debut as a composer, using her years of experience studying and singing to provide a unique vision. The new works are based on, or influenced by, Hildegards philosophic writings and her visions.
