We would love to know what you thought of the concert. Please use #ProDefunctis Please tell your friends about us! Word of mouth matters!


Kantorei KC: French Counter-Reformation
 Join us for a rich programme of 17th Century French music from du Caurroy, de Wert and others juxtaposed with the Protestant hymns of Louis Bourgeois. Most of this programme will be heard for the FIRST time ever by Kansas City audiences.

Very little exists musically from this time and place. Largely because of how bloody this period of time was. Musicians were victimized much like the general populace because of the religious disputes. The quantity of surviving music is low, but we believe the quality is high and full of passion!

Our center piece is Eustache du Caurroy's Missa Pro Defunctis (Mass for the Dead) is particularly poignant when considering the back-drop.  We will open the concert with the starkness of the Calvinist hymns of the day using some of their earliest harmonizations. From there moving to the more complex polyphony of the rebellious Catholic composers.  

$15 at the door.
$10 for seniors at the door.
