The Great PDtP Birthday Vote: Part 1

As you know, every PDtP session is a pretty special occasion, with a carefully selected anthology of some of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written, all to be sung whilst getting slowly trollied. 

A PDtP birthday session, though, really is the absolute tops, as we get to revisit some of the very best material from the previous 12 months.

As part of this year’s celebrations, you now have the chance to select what we are going sing at our 2nd Birthday Bonanza.

There’ll be 10 daily polls in all, each offering you 4 pieces from which to make your selection. (Having to whittle down 40 masterpieces to just 10 will be traumatic but I know you can do it.)

So let’s get cracking!

Have a listen to these 4 works that debuted at our Iberian special back in November 2015, then vote on which one of them you’d like to see on the set-list on October 17th. (The poll can be found beneath the 4th video.)

How about the 6 voice Kyrie from Cardoso‘s Missa pro defunctis?

Or Padilla‘s austerely beautiful Stabat Mater?

You could pick Pater peccavi by another Portuguese master, Duarte Lôbo.

Finally for today’s poll, what about the lovely 4 part Regina caeli by Morales?

Which one will make it through? You decide!

(The poll will remain open until 10pm on Wednesday October 12th. Anyone can vote, even if you’re not coming to the session. That’s how inclusive we are.)

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
