Vox Resonat - Mausoleum Concert for Day of the Dead
The Hope Abbey Mausoleum in the Eugene Masonic Cemetery will be the site of Vox Resonats Day of the Dead concert on Saturday, Oct. 29 at 3:00 PM. The Mausoleum is located at E. 26th and University, where E. 26th dead-ends into the cemetery.

Vox Resonat, a small ensemble of solo vocalists, specializes in music of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque.

This concert will feature Guillaume Dufays Lamentatio Sanctae Matris Ecclesiae Constantinopolitanae, a lament on one of the most tragic events of the middle ages - the fall of Constantinople and, with it, the last vestiges of the Roman Empire; the creepy plea Hear my Prayer by Purcell, and musical musings on mortality by Byrd, Josquin, Gesualdo, Lassus, Agricola and Gombert.

Eric Mentzel, founder of Vox Resonat, is glad to see the group performing in the historic mausoleum for a third time. Hope Abbey is the idea place for a musical memorial. The acoustics of the building are wonderful for vocal music; singing this repertoire in this building for this occasion is just perfect.

So perfect in fact, that both of the past Halloween-inspired concerts at the Mausoleum were sell-outs. Last year, people unable to get tickets stood outside for the entire performance - just to hear this concert! says soprano Alison Kaufman. We now sell tickets in advance through BrownPaperTickets.com so that our audience can plan ahead and not be disappointed.

Of course, the music and the space are not the only attractions for this concert. Vox Resonat is an ensemble of highly-trained soloists, rather than a choir, and is unlike almost every other group in the Northwest. The unique composition of the ensemble lets us do music that other people cant, explains Mentzel, and were excited to give our Eugene audience the chance to hear music that has probably never been performed here.

More information can be found at facebook.com/voxresonat or by visiting the Vox Resonat website, voxresonat.com.
