Polyhymnia will again join forces with international guest artist and early music and choral specialist JanJoost van Elburg to offer a weekend workshop focusing on the magnificent music composed by Philippe Rogier and Nicolas Gombert. The centerpiece will be Rogier's Missa Ego sum qui sum, composed during the reign of Phillip II of Spain on a motet by Nicolas Gombert, who worked for Phillip's father, Charles V. Polyhymnia will be performing the same repertoire on our November concert and the workshop will provide a unique opportunity to gather New York’s choral community together, crossing the usual stylistic lines to explore and discover this rarely performed repertoire.

The workshop is open to all choral singers who can read music.

Music will be provided for download in advance of the event. If you wish, you are welcome to view samples of the music.

 A father and son, one the Holy Roman Emperor, the other groomed for power and the throne of Spain. Charles V and Phillip II in succession ruled one of the most powerful empires of Renaissance Europe and the New World. Theirs was a court that colonized a continent and fought the powers of the Lutheran Reformation. Naturally, the music of their chapels reflected their image and power. Join us for a concert of the best music of the Spanish Hapsburgs, as rich and multitextured as the monarchs that commissioned them.
The Roman Church was banished, and new music was required. The composers of the English Chapel Royal undertook radical music for times of radical change.  The great gentleman of the Tudors, Thomas Tallis, joined by his younger colleagues Robert Parsons and John Sheppard, set out to replace Latin liturgical works now considered obsolete with compositions in the new language of the Church; English. Together, they reshaped and defined music for the Anglican Rite that is still in use today. Join us as we honor the pioneers of the English choral tradition.
 With the arrival of Adrian Willaert in Rome, another of the great Flemish voices, like Josquin, became entwined with music making in Italy. However, it was his appointment in 1527 to the prestigious post of Maestro di Cappella at Venice’s Basilica of San Marco that secured the legacy of Franco-Flemish composition as the dominant style of composition in northern Italy. His legacy was passed on to his younger colleague Cipriano de Rore, and Italian natives like Costanzo Porta and Andrea and Giovanni Gabrielli. Join us as we explore the musical influences of the north on the sumptuous chapels of Ferrara and Venice.
