The critically-acclaimed vocal ensemble His Majesty's Men presents their summer concert on Saturday, August 10, at 7:30 pm in Chicago's historic St John Cantius Church. His Majesty's Men is an international ensemble: its five members hail from Great Britain, Chicago and the US East Coast. Since their founding in 2016, their summer concert has increasingly been recognised as a highlight in Chicago's musical calendar. Chicago Tribune critic Alan Artner noted the ensemble's "purity of tone and impeccably smooth delivery...their subtlety of color could not be bettered," while Chicago classical radio WFMT recently named them to their list of "11 new local ensembles that you should know."

This year the Men will premiere their first commission, from composer Mark Nowakowski, a Chicago native who teaches and composes in Ohio. He has been performed by Kronos Quartet among many others, and his music has been critically acclaimed by Gramophone magazine. He will be present in Chicago for His Majesty's Men's performance of his new, powerful work "Usquequo, Domine?" which he describes thus: "it is easy to fall into despair at the sight of growing confusion, the fragmentation of reason, and the loss of faith and wonder in an increasingly cynical culture. But we plea to our Creator for deliverance and strength."

Other works in the program are by early polyphonists Dufay, Byrd and Whyte, as well as modern works by Ivan Moody, Howard Skempton and Chris Hutchings.

There will be a reception following the concert.

The performers:

Richard Childress, countertenor
Matthew Dean, tenor
Nathaniel Adams, tenor
Joe Labozetta, baritone
Michael Hawes, bass
