A concert inspired by works of art on display in the Great Hall at Glencairn Museum

The ancient works of sacred art on display in Glencairn Museum’s Great Hall have lived through centuries of human activity, witnessing a constant ebb and flow of new ideas in art and music.  Join early music vocal ensemble Les Canards Chantants in an aural circumnavigation of the Great Hall, bringing Raymond Pitcairn’s medieval collection to life through the music of Machaut, Isaac, Morales, Lassus, Monteverdi, Palestrina and more.

With Rebecca Hoke, soprano; Katy Avery, soprano; Robin Bier, alto; Jeffrey Cutts, tenor; Graham Bier, bass.

Les Canards Chantants is an international solo-voice ensemble specializing in Renaissance polyphony. It has appeared on BBC One Countryfile singing 16th-century English latin, flash-mobbed Hardwick Hall to perform the music decorating the famous Eglantine Table, and brought soaring polyphony to venues ranging from the depths of Poole’s Cavern to the high altar of Soest Cathedral.
