Schola Cantorum dedicates this concert to the memory of Clare Fewtrell, who died October 7. Clare sang with Schola in years prior to 2009, and at Summer Workshops throughout the years, and made the trip from Ithaca to attend most Schola concerts of recent years. We miss her.
The Brumel is a change from the program previously posted.
[after Wikipedia:] Antoine Brumel (c. 1460 – c. 1512) was one of the most influential composers of his generation.
He was at the center of changes taking place in European music around 1500, when the previous style of highly differentiated voice parts was giving way to a more smoothly flowing polyphony of equal parts. His Missa pro defunctis, a late work, is notable as the first polyphonic requiem setting to include the Dies irae. The piece employs alternatim polyphony, in which sections of plainchant alternate with sections of polyphony. It is one of the earliest polyphonic requiems to survive; only Johannes Ockeghem's Requiem is earlier.
