‘Runners-up’ session

Thanks to all who have been voting on our 2nd Birthday Bonanza set-list.

At Friday’s Counterpint in the Cafe session, we’ll be singing some of the works that don’t make the final cut – though they’ll still be top-notch material, without a doubt.

The lovely team at Travelling Through have kindly agreed to extend the arrival time to 7pm, so book yourself a space here. (More alto spaces will be available from 5pm on Monday.)

Cheers

Kevin

Just as an FYI, these PDtP set-list polls took a day to set up. A whole day. Part 8

Poll No. 8 of the PDtP 2nd Birthday Bonanza set-list vote. (You can still vote in previous polls by clicking here.)

Have a listen to these 4 works that we first sang in our European special in July 2016, then vote on which one you’d like to see in the line-up on October 17th. (The poll can be found beneath the 4th video.)

Let’s go Dutch with Sweelinck‘s Viri Galilaei.

To be fair, Zieleński‘s Vox in Rama is also a strong contender for your vote.

Hang on, though; what about the clever canon in Mouton‘s Salva nos, Domine?

Then again, if we don’t sing Pedersøn‘s Kyrie from his Missa quinque vocum then who will?

Which one? It’s just so awfully difficult, isn’t it?

(Poll will remain open until 10pm on Wednesday October 12th. Anyone can vote, even if you’re not coming to the session.)

Remind me, how many PDtP polls did you say there were again? Part 7

Poll No. 7 of the PDtP 2nd Birthday Bonanza set-list vote. (You can still vote in previous polls by clicking here.)

Have a listen to these 4 works that we first sang back in May 2016, then vote on which one you’d like to see in the line-up on October 17th. (The poll can be found beneath the 4th video.)

Verdelot. He should be better known, judging by his Beata es virgo, Maria.

By contrast, Lassus is of course very well known but we don’t sing enough of him. You can rectify this by choosing his Laetentur caeli. 

Here comes Palestrina again, the old rascal! You gotta love his Pueri Hebraeorum (even when we sing it down a fourth)!

And, as always, Victoria is hot on his heels, this time with Gaude, Maria virgo.

Which one will get through? You must decide. You simply must.

(Poll will remain open until 10pm on Wednesday October 12th. Anyone can vote, even if you’re not coming to the session.)

That’s right, it’s yet another PDtP Birthday Set-list! Part 6

Poll No. 6 of the PDtP 2nd Birthday Bonanza set-list vote. (You can still vote in previous polls by clicking here.)

Have a listen to these 4 works that first crash-landed onto the PDtP scene in our madrigal special in May 2016, then vote on which one you’d like to see in the line-up on October 17th. (The poll can be found beneath the 4th video.)

Will we find Pilkington‘s Have I found her? on the list?

Or how about the bittersweetness of Morley‘s O grief, e’en on the bud?

Then again, I have a strong feeling it will be Wilbye. Or will it be? Wilbye, I mean. Here’s Adieu, sweet Amaryllis.

Morley? Again? Well, he is pretty darn good, as may be heard from his I love, alas, I love thee.

Which one will it be? Do you care enough to cast a vote? Well, do you?

(Poll will remain open until 10pm on Wednesday October 12th. Anyone can vote, even if you’re not coming to the session.)

A poll a day keeps the doctor away! (Sorry.) Part 5

Poll No. 5 of the PDtP 2nd Birthday Bonanza set-list vote. (You can still vote in previous polls by clicking here.)

Have a listen to these 4 works that we introduced back in April 2016 ,then vote on which one you’d like to see in the line-up on October 17th. (The poll can be found beneath the 4th video.)

How about Bach’s chorale-arranging predecessor Eccard and his masterful Christ lag in Todesbanden?

Or the marvelously full-textured Ego flos campi by Clemens non Papa?

It’s only Palestrina again! Here’s his Benedicite gentes.

And where Palestrina roams, Victoria can’t be far behind, this time with his Ego sum panis vivus.

Which one? You decide. No, you decide. No, I asked you first.

(Poll will remain open until 10pm on Wednesday October 12th. Anyone can vote, even if you’re not coming to the session.)

Flex those democratic muscles: vote in the PDtP set-list poll! Part 4

Poll No. 4 of the PDtP 2nd Birthday Bonanza set-list vote. (You can still vote in previous polls by clicking here.)

Have a listen to these 4 works that we first sang in our epic double-choir special in March 2016, then vote on which one you’d like to see in the line-up on October 17th. (The poll can be found beneath the 4th video.)

Palestrina‘s always a popular choice, but will his Laudate Dominum a 8 win out?

Victoria is no less a master, so how about his Lauda Sion a 8?

Anerio, you say? Well, why not, especially if it’s Venite ad me.

Finally, would you like another run-through of Adoramus te by Gallus?

Hmmm, which one, which one…?

(Poll will remain open until 10pm on Wednesday October 12th. Anyone can vote, even if you’re not coming to the session.)
