Giving Voice to the Glories of 16th Century Spain
Milwaukee – The vocal ensemble Lionheart will bring the glorious music of 16th century Spain to Milwaukee at 7:30 Saturday, April 14th  at the Chapel of St. Joseph Center.  Presented by Early Music Now, the program, entitled “El Siglo de Oro” (The Century of Gold), is an exploration of rarely performed 16th century sacred music associated with the multi-cultural city of Toledo, Spain.
With Gregorian chant as its point of departure, the program includes the cosmopolitan sonorities of motets by Cristobal Morales, alongside the playful Andalusian exuberance of Francisco Guerrero’s “Canciones y Villanescas Espirituales.”  The centerpiece of the program, which will be presented without intermission, is the rarely heard “Missa Ave Maria” by Morales.
From the beginnings of their collaboration in 1993. the six men of Lionheart have established themselves at European festivals and at concerts throughout the United States as leading exponents of a cappella singing, and of Gregorian chant and Renaissance polyphony in particular.  The members include countertenor Lawrence Lipnik, tenors Michael Ryan-Wenger and John Oslund, baritones Richard Porterfield and Jeffrey Johnson, and bass Kurt-Owen Richards.  Early Music Now last presented Lionheart in Milwaukee in 1999.
“El Siglo de Oro” will be performed by Lionheart on Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 pm in Milwaukee at the Chapel of St. Joseph Center, 1501 South Layton Boulevard, and on Sunday, April 15th at 3:00 in Madison at Luther Memorial Church, 1021 University Avenue.  The Madison performance is presented in collaboration with the Madison Early Music Festival.
General admission tickets are $28 for adults and $10 for students (minimum 6 years of age).  Individual tickets may also be purchased in the reserved seating section at $35 for adults, $17.50 for students.  Group discounts are also available.
Individual tickets may be purchased online, by mail, or by phone.  To order, or for further information, check EMN’s website at www.earlymusicnow.org, or contact Early Music Now, 414.225.3113 (Milwaukee), 1.877.546.8742 (toll-free), email to info@earlymusicnow.org, or mail to 1630 East Royall Place, Milwaukee 53202-1810.
