Music of the Renaissance: The Earthquake Mass

February 23, 2019 - St. John’s Episcopal Church, Boulder
February 24, 2019 - St. Paul Community of Faith, Denver (matinee, 4:00pm)

Ars Nova Singers has been recognized for presenting vibrant programs of unusual works from the Renaissance. This program features one of the most breathtaking outbursts of the Renaissance imagination, the colossal “Earthquake” Mass by the French composer Antoine Brumel (c. 1460– 1513). The mass has been called “one of the true marvels of Renaissance choral writing,” with its unusual scoring for 12 voices and its carefully constructed melodic detailing set against astonishingly long, slowly-moving blocks of harmony.

A Celebration of Colorado Artistry: Shared Visions 2

April 26, 2019 - Bethany Lutheran Church, Cherry Hills Village
April 27, 2019 - St. John’s Episcopal Church, Boulder

Shared Visions 2 is an interdisciplinary collaboration of Colorado artists: in the summer of 2018, an online gallery of works by Colorado visual artists will be assembled. Then, poets from across the state will view the gallery and use the images as a basis for writing new poetry. This new poetry will be assembled into an anthology, and Ars Nova will commission four Colorado composers to use this anthology to create new music for chorus. We will gather all the artists at the concerts, celebrating our shared visions and new horizons in artistic inspiration and expression.
