Inside, outside, and in the streets—hear the bellowing of sacred texts and the howling of carnival songs, the devotion of the faithful and the revelry of the drunk.
Cut Circle joins Stanford students from Music 159J (“Performance as Analysis”) to sing from—and invent multi-voice music based on—a perfectly preserved fifteenth-century Florentine chant manuscript. The book forms part of the sumptuous Burke Collection of Early Italian Miniatures, which will be on view during the performance as part of the exhibition The Illuminated Page: Decorated Medieval Choirbooks from the Burke Collection.
All are welcome. RSVP if you would like to attend.
