Music Before 1800 presents: The Marian Consort
February 11, 2024 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
Rory McCleery Artistic Director
In his own time an important music theorist, Lusitano’s reputation and music have both been neglected in ours. As so often with musical figures of the Renaissance, many of the details of his life remain unknown. We can, however, be reasonably confident that he was the first published composer of African heritage.
True to its pioneer spirit as ‘brilliant discoverers, and exponents, of rare repertoire’ (The Observer), in 2022 the British ensemble The Marian Consort recorded a carefully chosen program of these striking and impressive unjustly forgotten works.
They present their sensational album in a stirring Music Before 1800 debut.
‘Breathtakingly beautiful…The Marian Consort is a young ensemble with beautiful voices that knows how to get the most out of this music. Lusitano’s music is truly a discovery!’ – Klassieke Zaken
Highlights from this calendar are included in the weekly E-Notes email newsletter (Tuesdays). Selections are made based on variety of event types and geographic regions.
