‘Mass for Five Voices’
The Williams College Department of Music presents the Chamber Choir on Friday, April 25, and Sunday, April 27, both at 4 p.m., in the rotunda at Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown, Ma. These free events are open to the public. The Choir, under the direction of Brad Wells will perform William Byrd’s ‘Mass for Five Voices.’ Byrd wrote during the Renaissance when Catholicism existed underground in England. They will also perform some of Byrd’s shorter works in English and Latin and a piece by Brad Wells titled ‘Render,’ which was written originally for Roomful of Teeth, Wells’s Grammy award-winning vocal ensemble.
The Williams Chamber Choir is a mixed, sixteen-voice group, just the right size for the rotunda, a small, round, domed room. For more information, call 413-597-3146 or visit music.williams.edu.
