Description:

As part of the 2013 New York Early Music celebration, Polyhymnia presents a concert of music from the epicenter of the sacred arts in Renaissance Poland, Krakow’s Wawel Cathedral. Influenced by Flemish and Italian models, music composed by Bartłomiej Pękiel and his contemporaries dominated both secular and religious life in the center of arts and culture in Renaissance Poland – the city of Krakow. Both the royal court and the ecclesiastical community of the Cathedral commissioned works from these composers for their pastimes and sumptuous liturgies. The center piece of the concert is the Missa Pulcherrima ad instar Praenestini, the manuscript for which is in the Wawel Cathedral Library.  This piece was composed in homage to the Palestrinian style, and is eloquently based on Polish carol tunes. The result is a lovely hybrid of the Italianate style and a deep sense of Polish popular culture. The concert will be preceded by a lecture given by Dr. Szymon Paczkowski, a leading Polish musicologist specializing in the music of the Renaissance and Baroque who is appearing under a cultural exchange in cooperation with the Polish Cultural Institute of New York.

About the Ensemble:

Polyhymnia creates vibrant, historically informed performances of music from the courts and cathedrals of the Renaissance world. Working with museums and libraries, liturgical historians and educational institutions, Polyhymnia preserves and revives masterworks of the choral literature composed in Europe and the Americas between the years 1450 and 1650. Since 2000, Artistic Director John Bradley has been preparing original editions of music for the ensemble in repertoire including numerous modern premiers of works which have remained unperformed since the 16th century.
