EVOLUTION: FROM PLAINSONG TO POLYPHONY (Extra Performance)
Thanks to your generous support, tickets for IN THE DARK with VOX Cape Town at the Youngblood Gallery on Wednesday 19 February are now SOLD OUT.
However, VOX Cape Town, Biblioteek Productions and Youngblood are delighted to announce an EXTRA PERFORMANCE for those who missed out.
BOOK NOW to experience first-hand the development of choral music, from the simplicity of plainchant to the most complex polyphony, in complete darkness.
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".
