Cappella Pratensis in Concert
Williams College Department of Music presents Cappella Pratensis in a free concert on Saturday, February 22, at 8 p.m., in Thompson Memorial Chapel on campus. This Dutch vocal ensemble champions the music of the polyphonists of the 15th and 16th centuries, combining historically informed performance with original interpretations based on scholarly research and artistic insight. Members of Cappella Pratensis sing from the original mensural notation scored in a large choirbook. This approach, together with attention to the linguistic origin of the compositions and the modal system on which it is based, offers a unique perspective on the repertoire.
