About the Event

Literally meaning “rooster song” or “cock crow,” Gallicantus takes its name from the term used in monastic antiquity for the office held just before dawn: a ceremony which evokes the renewal of life offered by the coming day. With members drawn from such renowned English vocal ensembles as Tenebrae (whom Princeton audiences heard last season), The Tallis Scholars and King’s Singers, Gallicantus are as meticulous about providing context and insight for audiences as they are about crafting interpretation of the music they love.  Listen to this ensemble but a few minutes and you will find yourself believing in the higher power.  Of Music.

Program

“SWEET LAMENTS OF THE ENGLISH RENAISSANCE,” music of Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, Robert Whyte, Robert Parsons and John Sheppard. At the heart of each half of this program lies a monumental setting of the Lamentations of Jeremiah, each now considered a masterpiece of its type. Here, as in the rest of the program, the music of Tallis, the ‘Father’ of Elizabethan music, is set against works by his most important colleagues. The names of Robert Whyte, Robert Parsons and John Sheppard are not as widely recognized as those of Byrd and Tallis today, though this is not for any lack of quality, as this program attempts to show.
