Romance and Reverence @ Galway Early Music Festival 2017

Friday, 19 May 2017, 8.00pm

Crux Vocal Ensemble (dir. Paul McGough) with Natalia, saxophone

Crux Vocal Ensemble sings of love and commitment in this concert of vocal music from the Ars Antiqua to the Late Renaissance. Encompassed by Church blessing – heard in the music of Perotin, Tallis, Gesualdo and Purcell – our lovers navigate the rise and fall of life and love; a familiar human endeavour undiminished by time.  Ten voices, a peal of handbells, a frill of instruments and the extraordinary talents of soprano saxophonist Natalia. A new halo of beauty irradiates this ancient music. Something old, something new.
