In the Sweet Shade

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.

Salle Bourgie
1339 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal

Cipriano de Rore was a rock star in his lifetime, and afterwards even the great Monteverdi admitted his debt to Rore’s experimental new style. This season Rore turns 500, and we still love the flowing lines, chromatic harmonies, thick counterpoint, and serious expression of his madrigals, masses, and motets. “In the sweet shade” (Alla dolce ombra) is his most famous piece.
