Love and Lamentation.KHORIKOS

This program aims to juxtapose some of the most expressive sacred and secular vocal music of the medieval and Renaissance eras, featuring dramatic settings of the Lamentations of Jeremiah by Alonso Lobo and Ferrabosco the Elder alongside heartfelt and heart-wrenching love songs from Gesualdo, Monteverdi, and others.

KHORIKOS is one of New York's most distinguished a cappella ensembles, performing a wide range of music from medieval polyphony to contemporary sound sculpture. The ensemble aims to reinvent choral music by exploring the musical and emotional links between master composers from centuries past and their living counterparts.
