Vox Populi, Vox Dei

The people have spoken and we now have our set-list for Monday’s Birthday Bonanza.

I must admit to some surprise at a couple of the selections, but at least Peñalosa didn’t make it through. (Poor Peñalosa; his Ave verum has in fact made it on to tonight’s Counterpint runners-up set-list.)

Many thanks to all of you who took the time to vote; here now are the fruits of your labours:

Byrd: O sacrum convivium

Clemens non Papa: Ego flos campi

Gesualdo: Sancti spritus, Domine*

Guerrero: Alma redemptoris mater

Morales: Regina caeli a 4

Morley: I love alas I love thee

Palestrina: Laudate Dominum a 8

Palestrina: Pueri Hebraeorum

Victoria: O magnum mysterium

Zieleński: Vox in Rama

There’ll be the usual warm-up Bach chorales as well, so all in all it should be a great evening.

If you’ve signed up then you should have received an e-mail with the links to the scores. If you missed out on signing up, there’re still one or two places left at tonight’s Counterpint in the Cafe.



*The Gesualdo was tied with Croce‘s O sacrum convivium so the judges went with the work that’s likely to be more fun to sing under the influence.

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.
