Five College Collegium Concert: The Orphic Obrecht

Dec. 5, 2018 7:30 pm
Grace Episcopal Church, Amherst

The Collegium explores the works of Jacob Obrecht, born in Ghent in 1450. He was held in the highest esteem by his contemporaries and his masses and motets were performed at many princely chapels and at the Vatican. Obrecht succeeded Josquin as the maestro di cappella in Ferrara in 1503, but his time in Italy was cut short by his death from the plague in 1505.

The Collegium choir will perform selections from masses, Marian and Christmas season motets and Obrecht’s moving lament on the death of his trombone-playing father. The program is rounded out by instrumental selections performed on winds and viols.
