From Gregorian Chant to J.S. Bach, The Choral Mix presents music of exquisite beauty in celebration of the Christmas holiday. The Hilliard Ensemble gets medieval with some music written by Perotin for the cathedral of Notre Dame, while New York’s own Pomerium give their account of Josquin Deprez’s music.
Coming off performances with The New York Philharmonic, The New York Oratorio Society and Musica Sacra, Kent has Messiah on the brain! He shares what he likes so much about John Eliot Gardiner’s rendition. The critically acclaimed quartet New York Polyphony is also featured on this show. This group is a rising star all over the world in early music and they share motets from their recording “I sing the Birth”, including one that reminds us of why chant is so timeless. Join us for all of this and more on The Choral Mix with Kent Tritle.
