Diabolus In Musica

Cantores: Music from Chapel of the Popes in Avignon

Pre-Concert Talk
JoAnn Taricani (Chair, Music History, UW School of Music)
6:30 PM // St. James Cathedral Place Meeting Room (803 Terry Ave, directly next to Cathedral)

Named for the dissonant gap in musical pitches thought to evoke the devil in the Middle Ages, the French medieval music ensemble Diabolus in Musica takes you back to the 14th century Avignon Papacy, where bold musical innovation arose amidst religious and political turmoil. Travel among the great manuscripts including Philippe De Vitry’s motets that formed the ars nova period. Read the program notes by Music Director Antoine Guerber. The male vocalists of Diabolus in Musica will revive your passion for polyphony.
