Current Season (2017-2018)
The Jameson Singers launched their 8th season with a performance of masterworks by Heinrich Schütz and Claudio Monteverdi. Profoundly innovative, these composers created new musical genres by seamlessly weaving Renaissance polyphony and choral chant with the vocal virtuosity of the early Baroque. Our musical feast included psalms, motets, madrigals and selections from Monteverdi’s ravishing Vespers of 1610. The 70-voice chorus was joined by professional soloists and a chamber ensemble featuring sackbuts and cornetti from the acclaimed Dark Horse Consort.
In the spring we will present music from the British Isles and America spanning the last hundred years (1918-2018) of choral history — featuring Britten, Howells, O’Regan & Barber, Fine, Kyr, and others. We will present two concerts: 2:00pm on Sunday, April 22 at Hancock Church in Lexington and 8:00pm on Saturday, April 28 at First Church in Cambridge. More details to come!
