Extreme Singing II:  The La Rue Requiem

Vox will once again make history by becoming the first modern ensemble in the world  to record the Requiem by Pierre de la Rue, unaccompanied, and at its written pitch.  This work is set at such an extraordinarily low range that many scholars have called it "unperformable".  In addition to shattering this misconception, the concert and recording project will involve other examples of "extreme singing" from the Renaissance, include a work featuring the lowest note ever written in Renaissance music!

In addition to the concert and recording project, the weekend activities include an interactive, open rehearsal where all are invited to a behind-the- scenes look at the rehearsal process.  Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the performers and the director about the music, the history and the recording process.
