Works by Machaut, Ockeghem and Vivier.
Birth and… Re-naissance! “Crois-tu en l’immortalité de l’âme?” or “Do you believe in the immortality of the soul” was Claude Vivier’s last work, left incomplete on his death. But for this event it will be revived and incorporated within some of the greatest works from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. A truly unique way of celebrating the 60th anniversary of Vivier’s birth, and marking the durability of his work! The Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montréal (SMAM) offers listeners a one of a kind evening, bringing its choir together with celebrated jazz singer Karen Young, accompanied by her musicians.
