Programme

Justin Doyle will travel back to the roots of choral music, joined by RIAS Kammerchor Berlin and organist Martin Baker. After the cultural hiatus caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Doyle and the choir’s singers will let music resound once more with this redesigned concert “Choir Renaissance (like a Phoenix …)”.

Starting from a monophonic melody composed by the mystic Hildegard of Bingen, they will journey together through the first Early Renaissance works for several voices, ultimately reaching the 16-voiced prime of polyphonic music through the centuries. They will perform works by Johann Bach, Giles Binchois, William Byrd, Antonio Caldara, Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa, Orlando di Lasso, Giovanni Pierluigi Palestrina, John Sheppard and Tomás Luís de Victoria.
