First performances in modern times of ten masterworks from the late Italian Renaissance

Chalice Consort will open its 2010-2011 season with "Music for Meditation and Devotion by Simone Molinaro (c.1570-after 1633)" in November; directed by our new artistic director, Davitt Moroney.

Simone Molinaro was master of music at the cathedral in Genoa. A contemporary of Monteverdi, he was a superb composer of both the older polyphonic style of Renaissance church music (heard in this program in six highly emotional motets in rich five-part harmony) and the newer baroque style (heard in four elegant duets).

Molinaro's compositions, recently been rediscovered by Peter Poulos, were revealed last year in San Francisco at Chalice Consort's competition for newly edited early music. The magnificent motet "Quae est ista" that won the competition will open this season's concert devoted entirely to Molinaro's music. The program closes with Molinaro's dramatic setting for double choir of a motet about the betrayal of Jesus: "My friend betrayed me with a kiss" ("Amicus meus osculi me tradidit signo").

This powerful music, being heard for the first time in over four hundred years, speaks to us today about love, passion, devotion, and human betrayal.

Organizer

Chalice Consort

Chalice Consort collaborates with early music scholars and musicians in helping little-known works from the Renaissance and early Baroque eras become more widely appreciated by the modern music-loving public. The Consort pays special attention to the verbal texts and to the music's rhetorical force, as well as to acoustics. Its performances also take into account the various concepts of stylistic decorum that were strongly articulated by humanist writers in the Renaissance and provide an essential part of the context in which these repertoires were composed, performed, and first appreciated. Chalice Consort aims to communicate the emotional power of this music to modern listeners.
