Cambridge Early Music Concerts 2014


Singer Pur

12.00 noon, Saturday 3 May, 2014
Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge
Tickets:  £20.00,  £15.00
Another programme with a broad sweep of composers: Adrian Willaert, Dominique Phinot, Jacobus Gallus, and Jean Richafort are complemented by two more recent German composers, Wolfgang Rihm and Hans Schanderl. Featured composer Ivan Moody receives a performance of his Canticum Canticorum II. A mixture of composers known and unknown, but presented in a compelling and inspired fashion by Singer Pur.
What seizes the ear are the thick weaves of counterpoint, and the dense and dissonant harmonies. To make this music speak the singers need a razor-sharp sense of pitch and a focused, pure tone, which the young German vocal sextet, Singer Pur, certainly have. - BBC Music Magazine
