MEDIEVAL LATIN CHANT FOR ST. JAMES dir. MARCEL PÉRÈS (Ensemble Organum, Moissac, France) Marcel Pérès 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 stolen (and recently recovered) from the Cathedral of St. James in Compostela, Galicia, Spain. With his celebrated Ensemble Organum, Marcel Pérès has made over 40 recordings of Latin chant and polyphony including Beneventan, Old Roman, Gallican, Carolingian, Mozarabic, Baroque and Renaissance repertoires. Cappella Romana is a 2012 Guest Choral Artist at St. James Cathedral. Seattle subscriptions include advance passes for this program. See subscription form for details.
