CLASSICAL: Voices

comment

Voices begins its tenth anniversary season this Sunday afternoon. Under the direction of Music Director William Weinert, Rochester's professional chamber chorus will present a Renaissance-era program titled "Sing Out, My Tongue". The main work, and the concert's namesake, will be Josquin des Prés' "Pange Lingua" Mass--a masterpiece of the Renaissance, but rarely heard in live performance. Josquin built his mass on the one of the great Gregorian hymns, "Pange Lingua," and it combines a careful, detailed structure with bold, virtuosic musical flourishes. A mass for the masses, you might say. The rest of the Voices program will offer pure vocal bliss, in the form of motets by Josquin and his 15th- and 16th-century contemporaries Ludwig Senfl, Johannes Ockeghem, and Jean Mouton.

Voices will present "Sing Out, My Tongue"on Sunday, September 23, 3 p.m. at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1050 East Avenue. Free. 271-1050 for Asbury FUMC. erchoirs.org/voices1.
