Making the Old New: Choral Concert by CONCORA
Trinity College Chapel, Trinity College, Hartford, CT
CONCORA returns to Trinity College Chapel, where last year a sold-out audience thrilled to the acoustic miracles of Renaissance motets and masses sung by a small choral ensemble beneath the soaring arches of the Chapel’s Gothic cathedral-esque architecture. This year’s program offers more Renaissance motets and madrigals paired with newer music inspired by the originals. Motets and madrigals by Renaissance “top forty” composers such as Morley, Vecchi, and Tallis will contrast with and complement choral music by renowned contemporary composers William Hawley, Eric Whitacre, and Martin Sedek. The concert features Eleanor Daley’s haunting Requiem, perfectly suited to this remarkable space.
