The FSU College of Music presents Early Music Ensembles – Cantores Musicae Antiquae on Monday, November 4 at 7:30pm in Lindsay Recital Hall. Admission to this performance is free and open to the public.
Referred to as “FSU’s heavenly Renaissance choir” in the Tallahassee Democrat just after it was formed in the fall of 1989, Cantores Musicae Antiquae consists of 5 to 12 singers and specializes in the music of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and early Baroque. Past performances include the American Musicological Society regional conventions, the national meetings of the Theory Society and the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music as well as at the statewide (Florida) convention of the American Choral Director’s Association.The ensemble has been broadcast twice on National Public Radio’s Millennium of Music. While this group performs mostly a cappella, it is often combined with members of the Early Music Ensemble for large concerted works.
Selections will include:
Ave Verum Corpus (1605) – William Byrd
If ye love me (1565) – Thomas Tallis
I sat down under His shadow (1925) – Edward Bairstow
God be in my head (1970) – John Rutter
