Coro de Cámara Contrapunctum and their religious repertoire

contrapunctum posterCoro de Cámara Contrapunctum wants to offer you, this afternoon the best of their religious repertoire. In the first part, you can hear fragments of two very different masses: the first, Josquin builds the polyphony based on Gregorian hymn "Pange Lingua", with the aim of combining music in the whole repertoire. In the second, Victoria uses for the same aim her own motet "O Magnum Mysterium". Different composition techniques, different moments in history, we will hear interrupted by the wonderful "Ave Maria" for four voices by Francisco de Guerrero. In the second part, English polyphonists like Thomas Tallis and William Byrd take us to the time of birth of the Anglican Church. Tradition that would inspire Henry Purcell to compose one of the most beautiful pages of music for a funeral ever written. We hope that the concert is to your enjoyment.

Contrapunctum in Albacete

On Friday 3rd October, the Contrapunctum Chamber Choir will travel to Albacete to offer, in the present music from the distant past: Renaissance music. The idea for this show came from the Educational Association, The Hive. This is a group of parents, who have come together to create, at Albacete, a school based on Waldorf education. One of the pillars supporting this educational ideal is learning through artistic practice, and what better occasion to listen to music of great beauty, the celebration of the new school year.

The concert will take place at the Assumption Cultural Center, located in the nuns in Albacete and will have very diverse works, from the Llibre Vermell Montserrat S. XIV to "In the midst of life" by H. Purcell without forgetting Encina carols and English madrigals of the sixteenth centuary.
