Quire Cleveland with guest conductor Jameson Marvin

Guest conductor Jameson Marvin — Harvard’s choral director for over 30 years — brings his exuberant and inspiring directing to Quire Cleveland for a concert of music by the great Renaissance composer, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina. Master of the papal choir at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Palestrina wrote music that is exquisitely beautiful and expressive. Quire Cleveland brings these glorious harmonies to Cleveland’s own historic St. Peter’s Church. The program features the Pope Marcellus Mass, his most famous composition, an important monument of 16th-century sacred music, as well as a stunning and enduring memorial to a pope who reigned for a mere 22 days. Interspersed among the movements of the Mass are some of Palestrina’s most exquisite motets (sacred works in Latin), many addressed to the Virgin Mary.  Everyone is welcome. These glorious sounds are certain to make your life more harmonious!
