Genesis, Renaissance and Reincarnation

Our subscription season begins with an experience of the creation of notated music. Ancient cultures used symbols (notations) to visually represent aurally-understood melodies, and, as most varied and complex compositions were performed a cappella, sacred texts were set to music to become chants. Join us in our musical collaboration with the Norbertine Fathers of Orange County’s own St. Michael’s Abbey as they sing Gregorian Chant, echoed by the de Angelis Ensemble’s Renaissance and Contemporary motets on these ancient themes.

William Byrd / Ko Matsushita, O Lux Beata Trinitas
