Upcoming Concerts

 

At 5:00 pm, Sunday, March 13, 2022, Pomerium presents “The Armed Man meets Pythagoras, Part I: The L’homme armé Mass by Antoine Busnoys, with chansons by Guillaume Du Fay and Josquin Desprez,” in the Church of the Transfiguration (“Little Church Around the Corner”) in New York. The brief chansons by Du Fay and Josquin will be interspersed among the Mass movements for variety and to simulate the separation of movements in polyphonic Masses when they were performed in a liturgical context in the Renaissance. One of the principal teachings of Pythagoras—that music on earth can be numerically in tune with the “music of the spheres”—plays a role in two L’homme armé Masses from the fifteenth century, one based on the other: Busnoys’s Mass from ca. 1465 and Obrecht’s Mass from ca. 1490. The Busnoys Mass will be performed on March 13.

At 8:00 pm, Saturday, March 19, 2022, Pomerium presents “The Armed Man meets Pythagoras, Part II: The L’homme armé Mass by Jacob Obrecht, with chansons by Guillaume Du Fay and Josquin Desprez,” in the Church of St. Ignatius of Antioch in New York. The brief chansons by Du Fay and Josquin will be interspersed among the Mass movements for variety and to simulate the separation of movements in polyphonic Masses when they were performed in a liturgical context in the Renaissance.

In recognition of the need for brief concerts until the Covid crisis has passed, both concerts will be no longer than 70 minutes without intermission.

Pomerium’s first concert of the 2012-2013 season was September 14 at the University of Notre Dame. It included slides of art works projected on a large screen above the singers. Here are some comments from people who were there: “Alex, thank you for the evening of beautiful music. We also appreciated both the well-chosen slides and your comments, which added a deeper dimension to our listening experience. Bravo to you and to your Pomerium; the concert was a delight in every way.” — Jane D. “I thought the concert last night was superb. I could have listened to three more hours. I was in the front row of the balcony and the acoustics were, to my ear, just perfect. Hearty congrats, and many thanks” –John E.
