Caleidoscópio! Unsung Voices from Portugal

Monday, May 23, 2022
7:30 PM - 9 PM

Rose of the Compass & Parthenia

Cathedral Choir of St. John the Divine

Kent Tritle, Nina Stern & Raymond Nagem, music directors

Come to sunny Portugal for an exploration of rarely heard works, including the remarkable 13th century female-voiced Cantigas de Amigo, symphonies of the converso Jewish heiress Leonora Duarte, as well as sacred and secular works of the 16th century by composer Vicente Lusitano. This delightful program rings, as Fernandes’s “Tane Gil tu tamborino” notes—with tambourine, flutes, pipes, rabel (stringed instruments) and ends with a Fiesta!

This concert is underwritten by a generous grant from Lois and Richard Pace.

The performance will also be available to livestream. For livestream tickets, please visit this page.
