Renaissance Roots ~ American Flowerings
In the Renaissance, vocal polyphony and close harmony reached an apex
of technical perfection, and their primacy in music culture was at its height.
This Golden Age of choral music coincided with the  first wave of European colonization of Africa and the Americas. Everywhere they went, the singing styles Europeans brought along were preserved and transformed by colonists, indigenous people and the enslaved, and strains of their musical in influence has persisted through the centuries to the present day. In North America, close harmonic singing and Baroque fugueing evolved into Sacred Harp psalmody. Following the Civil War, creative blends in opposing contexts  North/South, urban/rural, classical/pop, White/Black  gave birth to various uniquely American styles, such as Tin-Pan Alley, Barbershop and Gospel. This concert features Renaissance sacred music along with a selection of its  flowerings across four centuries, with prize-winning ensembles performing in diverse genres  sacred harp, classical choral, and gospel.
