Cappella Romana 21st Season Opener – Santiago De Compostela
Santiago De Compostela: Medieval Latin Chant for St. James
Directed by Marcel Pèrés (Ensemble Organum. Moissac, France)
Marcel Pèrés makes his Cappella Romana début directing an all-male chant ensemble in a program of medieval Latin hymnody for St. James.
The ensemble will sing directly from facsimiles of the Codex Calixtinus, the medieval manuscript recently stolen from the Cathedrol of St. James in Compostela, Galicia, Spain.
With his celebrated Ensemble Organum, Marcel Pèrés has made over 40 recordings of Latin chant and polyphony including Beneventan, Old Roman, Gallican, Carolingian, Mozarabic, Baroque and Renaissance repertoires.
