Early Music Missouri presents “Masters of English Polyphony—Motets & Masses by Dunstaple, Taverner & Byrd”
March 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EST$20
Early Music Missouri’s 2023 – 2024 season continues with a concert of sacred polyphony by English Renaissance composers John Dunstaple, John Taverner, and William Byrd. The program features two masses: Taverner’s “Western Wynde Mass” and Byrd’s “Mass for Four Voices.” Motets on the concert are Dunstaple’s famed trio “Quam pulchra es,” and Byrd’s eight-part motet “Diliges Dominum.” Early Music Missouri’s Vocal Ensemble features eight of the St. Louis area’s finest singers specializing in early music. Members of this ensemble perform regularly on EMMo concerts as soloists and the entire ensemble has presented well-received concerts of choral music by Monteverdi and Charpentier in 2022 and 2023.
Early Music Missouri presents all of its Mainstage Concert at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in St. Louis, a beautiful venue with an acoustic ideally suited to such intimate music. Parking is free and the venue has reserved parking and ramps for listeners needing special access accommodations. Early Music Missouri’s 2023-2024 season is supported by generous donations from our supporters as well as a Program Support Grant from the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission.
Admission is $20 at the door with discounts for students.
