From Patrick Allies

I’m pleased to be able to share with you our 4th Crowdfund video – made with your generous help.

It’s the Kyrie from Missa Tulerunt Dominum meum by Hieronymus Praetorius, an eight-part Easter mass setting that hasn’t yet been recorded – although this may be about to change! You’ll hear Franco-Flemish and Venetian influences – all the more startling for a composer who spent his life in Hamburg.

We really hope you enjoy it.  

Best wishes and many thanks, 

Patrick and Siglo de Oro

 

Performance at the Tate Modern 2016

In June 2016 about 50 choir members participated in two performances of The Bridge, which was part of the opening celebrations for the new building at the Tate Modern. The Tate Modern web site states that:

The Bridge is a unique cycle of songs written by the artist Peter Liversidge in response to Tate Modern’s building, its history and its place in contemporary life. Inspired by conversations the artist held with gallery staff, construction workers, visitors and local residents, the lyrics were sung unaccompanied and in unison by over twenty choirs involving over 500 singers to create a powerful soundscape in the Turbine Hall.
