Brattleboro Camerata Inaugural Concert Set for December 12
The Brattleboro Camerata, a chamber choir specializing in Renaissance-era and Renaissance-inspired music, presents its inaugural concert Sunday, December 12, at the BMC. Update: the concert is sold out for in person attendance – we have a waitlist.  But if you want to be sure not to miss it, you can join us virtually. https://youtu.be/vHbSoBpOnO8

Thanks to Ray Sebold and BCTV for making this possible!

The group, which consists of 17 singers who auditioned earlier this year and have rehearsed for months in anticipation of this concert, will offer a program of 10 seasonal works spanning the years 1400-1600 entitled “The Angels Sang.” The pieces include English carols, German chorales, Latin motets, and Spanish villancicos from familiar names like Palestrina, Josquin, di Lasso, and Victoria, as well as less frequently performed composers like the Spanish Mateo Flecha and Cristóbal de Morales, and the African-Portuguese Vicente Lusitano.

According to Music Director Jonathan Harvey, “The central idea of this program is to showcase the capabilities of this extraordinary group of singers, and to reveal the many ways that Renaissance composers commemorated the winter season, from penitent and somber reflections on mortality to vibrant and percussion-filled dance pieces celebrating life.”
