Bay Area, California: Josquin Singers, “The Empty Tomb & Tongues of Fire, From Easter to Pentecost in East & West”

Here are the details of the concert I’m singing next weekend in the San Francisco area with the Josquin Singers — please come if you’re around!

Celebrating the Feast of Feasts and the foundation of the Church, Artistic Director John Michael Boyer leads the ensemble on a journey from Easter to Pentecost and from East to West.  The holidays of Pascha (Easter) and Pentecost have yielded some of the most joyful and profound music in both the East and the West. This Pentecost weekend, the Josquin Singers will perform repertoire from this joyful season taken from the chant and polyphonic traditions of Rome, England, Moscow and Constantinople, sung in their original languages of Latin, Greek and Slavonic.
