Description

This spring, Clerestory's new program, Gemini: Music for Double Choirs, explores the kaleidoscopic sounds of twin choruses through the centuries. Composers have used pairs of four-voice choirs to fill the most vast of spaces: the great Spanish catedrales for which Victoria, Vivanco and Guerrero composed Song of Songs motets, Westminster Cathedral, where Vaughan Williams’ Mass in G Minor was first performed, and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, where Giovanni da Palestrina’s profound setting of Stabat Materwas heard during his life. You’ll hear all these, as well as double-choir pieces by the modern composers Benjamin Britten, Steven Sametz, James MacMillan, Herbert Howells and Paul Crabtree. Clerestory’s eight voices will combine in every permutation to illuminate this music that’s both intricate and otherworldly.
