Guildsingers, a professional early music consort directed by New York choral conductor David Rentz, presents an afternoon concert featuring English Christmas music from the first half of the 16th century. Highlights include John Sheppard’s beautiful Hodie nobis caelorum rex and his virtuosic Western Wind Mass. The program will also include the haunting Audivi of John Taverner, Richard Pygott’s magnificent macaronic motet Quid petis, O fili?, and several favorite English carols.
Featured last year on the nationally-syndicated radio program Millennium of Music, and having recently offered well-received performances at Columbia University, the 2007 New York Early Music Celebration, and Music at Holy Trinity, Guildsingers has been praised by concert-goers for both its virtuosic musicianship and its lively and innovative programming.
This performance is part of the Music at Holy Trinity subscription concert series, Stephen Hamilton, artistic director.
