Professor Peter Schubert and his award winning ensemble VivaVoce have released a new CD- Scenes from the Gospels: Motets from Josquin to Palestrina
The disc features Renaissance motets based on texts from the Gospels. These pieces were composed between 1500 and 1564 by the "lost generation" of composers - Willaert, Jachet, Manchicourt and Gombert, and depict various events in the life of Jesus, from birth to crucifixion. VivaVoce was founded in Montreal in 1998 by Peter Schubert. The award-winning ensemble is committed to performing classical music from all periods and to developing the art of Canadian choral music by commissioning at least one new work each year.
