Choir of the Corpus Christi Church with James Bassi

Sunday, April 22, 4 pm
Corpus Christi Church

James Bassi, conductor
Louise Basbas, director
Fourteen-voice choir

Tomás Luis de Victoria and the Spanish Golden Age

To complement Stile Antico’s concert, the Choir of Corpus Christi Church forgoes the solemnity of Holy Week to perform Victoria’s Missa O magnum mysterium and works by Guerrero and Morales from other feasts of the Church Year. Spain’s Golden Age, marked by overseas conquest and the accumulation of riches, was also an age of musical flowering—with Victoria at its center.

3:15 p.m. conversation with James Bassi, conductor/composer; and Thomas Baker, singer/ historian, in the auditorium

Post-concert wine-and-cheese reception in the auditorium

“The Choir of Corpus Christi Church has a non-homogenized sound, with particularly vivid colors in the tenors and sopranos. They sang with clear articulation and refined dynamics—they made the interior details easy to hear and enhanced the variety of the composers.” —New York Classical Review
