After careful consideration, we and our partner Alamire Foundation have decided to cancel the 2021 edition of 'Voices of Passion'.

Under the current circumstances, it will not be possible to organise a full-fledged festival.
We are currently negotiating other concert dates with the ensembles, for either this fall or the spring of 2022.
All ticket-holders will be notified personally.

SUBLIME ITALIAN POLYPHONY

Missa super voces musicales, the twelve singers of Huelgas Ensemble take us back to early 17th-century Rome. Francesco Soriano followed in the footsteps of Palestrina and even ventured an arrangement of the latter’s world-renowned 'Missa Papae Marcelli'. The resulting work for eight voices as well as his 'Ave Maris Stella' will also be performed during this opening concert.

The programme is garnished with masterly madrigals by Soriano’s contemporaries Giovanni de Macque and Scipione Lacorcia, both of whom worked in Naples and were inspirated by Gesualdo.
