Sacred and Secular Polyphony of the Renaissance and early Baroque

A golden age that Renaissance, especially for Italy, a shining gem in Europe; it excels in every artistic field and exports all its art with great success, and it is no coincidence that many of the most excellent composers of the time have come to Italy to perfect their studies in music (but not only), sometimes becoming Masters of Cappella or, in any case, important points of reference in some of the finest courtly courts.

The fascinating renaissance sacred and secular repertoire and the first European baroque touch the most common genres of the time: from motets accompanying liturgical functions and festivities in the majestic cathedrals of the “sacred” masters Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, to the “educated” madrigal of Michael East and Philippe Verdelot, from the French chanson of the sparkling Pierre Passereau and Orlando Di Lasso, to the Italian ballets and villains of Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi and Adrian Willaert.

Popular and pop music, and Contemporary “Neoclassical”

The light music, however you judge it, is in any case a great protagonist of the culture of our time, and accompanies us now in every place of daily action.
The repertoire includes reinterpretations, harmonizations and arrangements of some great classics of the pop and folk genre of almost exclusively American and English origin, from James Taylor and Billy Joel to the Beatles, to whom the Group dedicates a significant tribute proposing some of their most famous hits.
For several years the world choral scene has known the rapid success of some young composers by the undisputed and recognized talent, authors of a “new” genre of music, for this renamed and known as “contemporary neoclassical”.
Definitely a more “enjoyable” and catchy style of composition, it is mainly inspired by the classical polyphony, with a more or less simple structure, but by evocative and emotionally involving harmonies.
