Join Sine Nomine choral ensemble as it commemorates the 400th anniversary of Tomás Luis de Victoria's death. Born in 1548, Victoria is considered one of the most important composers of the Renaissance. The program, under the direction of Paul Cienniwa, will include some of his greatest works, including Tenebrae Responsories and Missa O Magnum mysterium. The concert will also feature a rare performance of selections from Orlando de Lasso's Prophetiae Sibyllarum. About Sine Nomine... Sine Nomine is an auditioned chamber choir based in Fall River, MA. Now in its 18th season, this community ensemble currently consists of eighteen voices, and performs music from the Middle Ages through the 21st-century, with a special emphasis on a cappella repertoire. Sine Nomine has collaborated with the Boston Camerata, Newport Baroque, Providence College, and was featured at the 2005 Organ Historical Society National Convention. The group draws its members from across southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. About the director... In addition to leading Sine Nomine, Paul Cienniwa is choral director at Framingham State University and director of music at First Church in Boston, where the professional First Church Choir can be heard weekly on WERS (88.9 FM) Boston. His harpsichord playing has been called "expert" (Boston EDGE), and the Boston Musical Intelligencer wrote that "not everyone can capture the Baroque French style as Cienniwa does." An advocate of new music, he has premiered choral works by Karl Henning and harpsichord works by Larry Thomas Bell, the latter which will soon be released on Albany Records. He received the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Yale University in 2003. For more information and for upcoming performances, visit www.paulcienniwa.com.
