FROM PLAINSONG TO POLYPHONY


Imagine the magical sensation of listening to exquisite choral music in complete darkness… 


Following three sold-out performances in the popular series "In The Dark" (2016-2018), VOX Cape Town, in collaboration with Biblioteek Productions, returns to the Youngblood Gallery for a programme of rarely-performed music that traces the evolution of the choral tradition through the centuries.


From the monastic sounds of unaccompanied plainsong and the organum of the Middle Ages, to the Age of Discovery and the glorious flowering of harmony after 1500, major milestones in choral development are presented in works by Dufay, Palestrina, Thomas Tallis, John Sheppard and Thomas Tomkins.


Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience over 1 000 years of choral music in the cathedral-like space of the Youngblood Gallery, in complete darkness.


This performance is based on a lecture-demonstration

that was presented by Grant McLachlan and VOX Cape Town at the UCT Summer School in January 2020 entitled "A Brief History of Harmony, the Universe, and Everything".
