Early Sacred Music Performance and Sing-Along by Mostly Motets
Mostly Motets will offer a combination performance and sing-along at 1:30 p.m. on June 8, 2008 at First Congregational Church of Berkeley.  The event will be offered in conjunction with the 2008 Berkeley Festival and Exhibition, a week-long early music festival co-sponsored by the San Francisco Early Music Society.  Audience members are invited to come to listen, to sing, or to do some of both.  Sheet music will be available.

We will sing unaccompanied, sacred music mostly from the Renaissance and Middle Ages.  Since that music is less familiar to most people than what is sung in more typical sing-alongs (e.g. the Messiah), the format will be a bit different.  For each piece, Mostly Motets will first perform the piece with the audience listening (and perhaps reading through the sheet music).  Immediately after that the audience will be invited to sing the same piece together with Mostly Motets.

Music selections will range from relatively familiar and easy to more unusual and challenging.  All or most of the pieces will be drawn from music like the following:

William Byrd: Ave Verum Corpus
Chant: Ave Verum Corpus
Josquin Desprez: In Principio Erat Verbum
Guillaume Dufay: Alma Redemptoris Mater II
Peter Lutkin: The Lord Bless You and Keep You
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina: Alma Redemptoris Mater
Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina: O Bone Jesu
Thomas Tallis: A New Commandment
Tomas Luis de Victoria: O Magnum Mysterium
Tomas Luis de Victoria: O Vos Omnes

Tickets are $10 if purchased on or before June 3rd and $15 after that date (including cash sales at the door).  Purchasing a ticket in advance assures that a seat and a program booklet (with sheet music) will be available for you.  If tickets are still available when the event starts, those who can not afford the full ticket price will be admitted for whatever donation they may wish to make.
