Lose yourself in a transcendent musical experience that will introduce you to the meditative and sublime beauty of early music. Favorites like the lavish 40-voice Spem in alium will be paired with rarely performed gems, by Palestrina, Allegri, Gesualdo, Byrd, and Monteverdi, inviting listeners to step out of time and place while being enveloped by sound.
Join the 18th Street Singers on this journey from darkness to light as they explore the original trailblazers of a cappella music and take leave of our nation’s capital for a world of newfound hope and intellectual and spiritual rebirth.
