The Muse of Sacred Song - 15th Anniversary Gala Concert
Polyhymnia John Bradley, director
This November, Polyhymnia celebrates 15 years of music-making! From the ensemble's humble beginnings in the West Village to artistic triumphs at venues in the world beyond New York, certain pieces have gained a special place in their hearts. Join them for an evening of music chosen by the performers as their favorites, drawn from their concerts over the years and titled in honor of the group's namesake, Polyhymnia, the ancient Greek patroness of sacred music. From the tender intimacy of Victoria’s beloved O magnum mysterium and the sensual elegance of Clemens Non Papa’s Ego flos campi to the splendid profusion of Tallis’ Loquebantur variis linguis, Polyhymnia offers a musical feast of Renaissance masterpieces.
A proper feast follows the concert-- a Gala Reception in honor of Polyhymnia’s fifteenth anniversary!
