Quire Cleveland, conducted by Ross W. Duffin

Quire Cleveland brings you glorious music by the greatest composers of the Renaissance: Josquin Desprez (“The Prince of Music”), Guillaume DuFay, Roland de Lassus, and many more! These composers from Flanders dominated music in the same way that Italians dominated the visual arts. Giants like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, and Tintoretto had their counterparts in Ockeghem, Willært, and a remarkable number of other sublimely talented composers. They were trained in the choir schools of the North, and often drawn to the brilliant courts of Renaissance Italy.

 

Come hear the flower of their music: exquisite motets of contrapuntal mastery, astonishing variety, and sonorous splendor!
