Town Hall Seattle
￼Titled “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker, and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America in 2008, the San Francisco-based, GRAMMY award-winning ensemble Chanticleer is known around the world as an orchestra of voices. Their program, Mystere, explores the mysteries at the core of the Christian story – perceived and set to music by composers from different corners of Western culture, viewing the profound ideas through their cultural prisms, united by awe. This wide ranging program includes works by early composers Gabrieli, Desprez, Lasso, Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria as well as later works by Wolf, Poulenc, and Rachmaninoff.
“…tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity.” – San Francisco Chronicle
