GEMINI – MARCH and APRIL 2017

This spring, Clerestory shares a program we’re very excited about. 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, and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, where Giovanni da Palestrina’s profound setting of Stabat Mater was 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, and Paul Crabtree. Clerestory’s voices will combine in every permutation to illuminate this music that’s both intricate and otherworldly.
