Concordian Dawn – A Medieval Candlelit Concert

Presented by Santa Cruz Baroque Festival

Live from New York City, Santa Cruz Baroque Festival presents CONCORDIAN DAWN, the Big Apple’s premiere Medieval music ensemble. They will perform the virtuosic Organum Quadruplum by Pérotin of Nôtre Dame de Paris (±1155 – ±1200 AD) and other 4-part treasures of Medieval music from Ars Antiqua to Ars Nova, assisted by Cappella Pérotinus male voices. A highlight will be a performance of the first complete, through-composed setting of the ordinary of the Mass by a single composer, the Messe de Nôtre Dame by 14th Century poet-composer Guillaume Machaut. A concert by candlelight in a magnificent acoustic and visual space.
