Josquin and the Lost Generation - CD Release Concert

Celebrate the release of the first CD from Vox!  The CD features music from one of Vox’s most successful concerts to date: “Josquin and the Lost Generation”, an exploration of the music of the master Josquin as well as the generation of composers who flourished after his death.  Featuring the rich polyphony of the six-voice Requiem of Jean Richafort, an unjustly neglected work that was composed for the death of Josquin.  Don’t miss this first chance to purchase Vox’s new CD.  

A pre-concert lecture will be given by Univ. of Michigan musicologist, Stefano Mengozzi.  Mark your calendars now for this special event.  

This concert and the recording are made possible, in part, by a grant from Pfizer Global Research and Development, Ann Arbor.

General admission tickets $5, available at the door. Ann Arbor area students are admitted FREE with a valid school ID.

Miserere:  Lenten Music from the Sistine Chapel

Renaissance music from the Sistine Chapel is often regarded as the culmination of this art form, and even serves as the origin of the term "a cappella".  In this program, we explore the beautiful sounds of 16th and 17th century Lenten music from the Sistine Chapel.  Featured is the famous Miserere by Allegri in both its commonly-performed version (which actually stems from a 19th-century transcription) as well as the rarely-heard original version by Allegri, as recreated from original Vatican sources. 

Tickets $18 / $12 Seniors /$5 students. Tickets available at the door on the evening of the performance.

Lux Aeterna:  Franco-Flemish Music of Remembrance

This concert features an exciting collaboration between the men of Vox and the men of the nationally-acclaimed Rose Ensemble (Minneapolis).  The twelve-voice male ensemble will explore the rich sonorities of polyphony from the famous Franco-Flemish school.  The unique combination of singers assembled for this program enables us to present the Requiem by Pierre de la Rue, a remarkable work written at such a low pitch that modern scholars have called it “unperformable”.  The performance will include a pre-concert lecture by Dr. Honey Meconi, arguably the leading scholar in the works of Pierre de La Rue, including specifically the Requiem.  This collaborative endeavor will be a highlight of the season; buy your tickets today!

Tickets $18 / $12 Seniors /$5 students. Tickets available at the door on the evening of the performance.
