Early Music Scholars' Compeitition Deadline Approaching!
Date: December 22, 2009
Location: California, USA
Early Music Scholars’ Competition
About the Competition:
There are hundreds of masses, motets, chants, and other such works surviving in Renaissance and Baroque manuscripts that have never been transcribed into modern notation. Chalice Consort is interested in helping the public rediscover some of these works written between 1400 and 1750.
The Early Music Scholars’ Competition, as a part of Chalice Consort’s Early Music Mining Conference, is calling for newly discovered and transcribed (i.e. never published or publicly performed) musical works from any country of origin that complement the focal piece of the annual Conference. For the 2010 Conference, the focal piece will be Thomas Ashwell’s Missa Ave Maria.
From the submissions received by December 31, 2009, the top five pieces will be selected to be presented at the Early Music Mining Conference on April 10, 2010. The five featured editors will present their scores to our panel of early music scholars and Chalice Consort will sing the pieces under the direction of our esteemed Guest Directors. From those editions presented at the Conference, two will be selected to be premiered by Chalice Consort at a future concert.
