The Ensemble Amarcord displays its unwavering dedication to the art of polyphonic singing within the walls of the splendid St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, the ideal place to interpret a program dedicated to the music of 16th-century composer Josquin des Près.
In their exploration of the repertoire left by this essential figure in Western music history, the quintet's throughline is music about the Virgin Mary: more than one Ave Maria and Salve Regina feature in this moving program, almost a reminder of the close connection felt by some listeners between artistic beauty and the experience of mystical joy.
