Carnegie Hall Presents

Early Music Vocal

Great vocal ensembles from around the world present masterpieces from the Renaissance and Baroque as part of the Before Bach focus. Pomerium sings spiritually and dramatically charged works written for the Tudor queens of England, while the internationally lauded TallisScholars perform music by Renaissance giants Josquin des Prez and William Byrd. The spirited ensemble I Fagiolini serves a spicy meal of French, Italian, Spanish, and German madrigals and songs that span the Renaissance to the early Baroque.
