Chalice Consort collaborates with early music scholars and musicians in helping little-known works from the Renaissance and Chalice IIIearly Baroque eras become more widely appreciated by the modern music-loving public. The Consort pays special attention to the verbal texts and to the music’s rhetorical force, as well as to acoustics. Its performances also take into account the various concepts of stylistic decorum that were strongly articulated by humanist writers in the Renaissance and provide an essential part of the context in which these repertoires were composed, performed, and first appreciated. Chalice Consort aims to communicate the emotional power of this music to modern listeners.  > Read More
