Annual Office of the Dead Concert - Victoria's Requiem
On Friday night, October 31, 2004 (yes, Hallowe'en night!) the very first San Francisco Renaissance Voices concert was presented at Seventh Avenue Presbyterian Church in San Francisco. Ten years to the day, we'll celebrate our birthday in that church which has become our artistic home by performing the same work that started it all Tomás Luis de Victoria's magnificent Officium Defunctorum, written for the funeral of his royal patron the Dowager Empress Maria which also began our group's "tradition" of performing the Office of the Dead each year at this time. This program will also include elegies written by Ockeghem, Josquin, Byrd & Morley for composers who inspired and nurtured them. For those of you coming to the concert on Hallowe'en we invite you to enjoy another San Francisco Renaissance Voices tradition and come in costume!
