Overview

"Take a moment to consider the best wedding present you’ve ever given. Then consider coming to this performance of music from the Medici Codex, a choir-book gifted exactly 500 years ago to Pope Leo X’s nephew. The book was collected from the best composers of the Renaissance, and stands the test of time due to the stunning nature of the vocal music. These sacred compositions were written during a time of political strife and represent some of the challenges and beauty of the time. You will hear voices leaping in and out of one another, a big, moving sound, performed by four separate ensembles who have come together to celebrate this unique collection of music. Ariose, conducted by Camille Couture UCSC Chamber Singers, conducted by Michael McGushin San Francisco Renaissance Voices, conducted by Katherine McKee"
