Songs of Love & Death: Music of Cipriano de Ro...

Presented by Blue Heron at Church of the Redeemer

Join Blue Heron for an evening of madrigals by Cipriano de Rore, one of the most expressive and influential composers of the mid-sixteenth century, whom Monteverdi called “il divino.” Rore launched his career with the landmark publication of I madrigali a cinque voci in 1542, a collection of twenty madrigals, many of which set sonnets from Petrarch’s Canzoniere, which changed the course of music history. In 2015 the American Musicological Society awarded the Noah Greenberg Prize to Blue Heron and to musicologist Jessie Ann Owens to support a world-premiere recording of the complete book, which is scheduled for release in the fall of 2019.
