Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

Needa recharge from win­ter? Brighten your spring evening with a rare early mu­sic treat. Mon­treal vo­cal en­sem­ble One Equall Mu­sick comes to Len­noxville on Satur­day, April 27 at 8 p.m. at St An­drew’s Pres­by­te­rian Church (256 Queen Street, Sher­brooke in the Bor­ough of Len­noxville) with their pro­gram “Lamen­ta­tion, Praise, Thanks­giv­ing: Euro­pean Psalmody, 1450-1650.”

This rich twelve-voice a cap­pella en­sem­ble ex­plores Euro­pean psalm tra­di­tions in five lan­guages: Ger­man, French, English, He­brew and Latin. The pro­gram pairs chant, hymn, and folk psalm set­tings with gems from prom­i­nent six­teen­t­hand sev­en­teenth-cen­tury masters. Works in­clude Hein­rich Shütz’ Psalm 116 for five voices, two He­brew set­tings by Rossi, Psalm 42 of Sweel­inck, Gib­bons’ O Clap your hands to­gether, and Josquin’s beau­ti­ful De Pro­fundis Cla­mavi.

Per­form­ing to­gether for nearly two years, One Equall Mu­sick is a small en­sem­ble of young, ded­i­cated mu­si­cians, com­posers and schol­ars who share a pas­sion for early mu­sic, artis­tic col­lab­o­ra­tion and per­for­mance ex­cel­lence. The group has per­formed in Mon­treal venues in­clud­ing Trin­ity Me­mo­rial Angli­can Church and the Villa Med­ica Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tive Hospi­tal, as well as hold­ing a choral Even­song se­ries at Birks Chapel on the McGill cam­pus.
