Renaissance means rebirth. It is also an era when much of the most beautiful choral music was composed. As we emerge from COVID-19, we present an evening of Renaissance choral music. This concert features nine all-new performances recorded and sung LIVE by four small ensembles from the Oregon Repertory Singers.

After one year of singing apart, we are ready to join our voices together in song for you.

Featuring composers of differing cultures and genders, we are pleased to present masterworks by Maddalena Casulana, Barbara Strozzi, Caterina Assandra, Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, José Maurício Nunes Garcia, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, and Thomas Weelkes.

“This was beautiful. A wonderful listen at the end of a hard day. Thank you thank you!”

“It was a good conversation and just lovely music, beautiful harmonies. The Illumina le tenebrae is one of my favorite services and I found Joan’s composition very moving; something true for all of them really. The ability to put together a very distanced choir is just amazing.”

“What a beautiful gift to enlightened the spirits of two ORS fans.”
