Great  music pages for voices only

Five centuries of songs to the discovery of the voice through the a cappella song. A guided visit, from the  profane songs of the '500 to the songs nearer our time.  The public comes accompanied in this distance  with some explanation to link each music period. The concert  will go through important sixteenth-century revisions  such as Come again sweet love doth  now invite or Pastime With Good Company, also called The King Ballad, composed  by Henry VIII himself;  from France a classic like Tourdion completes the atmosphere of an unconventional tribute, faithful to  history but tense to contemporaneity, with executions different to the  traditional canons of Renaissance  chant,  for the style of arrangement and for the modern interpretation.  A way to revive and understand today what 500 years ago was the pop genre.   A specific   moment is dedicated to the traditional italian  songs: "Il testamento del capitano”  (The  Captain’s Last Will) , a well-known Italian popular song, whose musical origins date back to the  Renaissance period (1528) followed by "Serafin" a song of the  traditional Alpine repertoire  arranged by  the  famous pianist  Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli  for the  SAT choir of Trento.   There is, in addition to the spiritual-traditional  of My Lord what a morning,t he  jazz standard like  Autumn  leaves of Kosma-Mercer or Lazy River by Carmhichael-Arodin and then the pop-rock of the 1960s  of An  old fashon love song and Wake up little Susie. The concert is closed by Here comes the flood of Peter  Gabriel which represent one of the best composers of the contemporanean pop.  Various musical atmospheres but at the same time tied from the history of music.  Music by  Williams, Dowland, Gabriel, M. Drake, Kosma, Carmhichael, Bryant.  In Christmas time the concert program includes also two beautiful english tradional songs of the sixteenth-  century: "Christmas is Coming" e " A Babe is Born", in addition to the well known "Hark di Herald Angel's  Sing" and “Jingle Bells”.
