King Solomon’s Singers will present RECORDARE: A RENAISSANCE PORTRAIT OF REMEMBRANCE AND LOSS. The program is part of a week of commemoration at historic Rockefeller Memorial Chapel of the centennial of the outbreak of World War 1, and it explores the effects of an event such as the Great War—separation, fear, loss, and of course death and remembrance—through the unique lens of Renaissance choral music. These themes are as old as humankind itself, and the composers of the Renaissance knew them well and expressed the attendant emotions in a deeply expressive yet controlled manner that makes for unusually rewarding listening. The ensemble will perform works of Josquin Desprez, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, Heinrich Isaac, Tomás Luis de Victoria, and others, including portions of Victoria’s heartbreakingly beautiful Requiem Mass.

About King Solomon's Singers
Founded in 2010, King Solomon’s Singers is an ensemble dedicated to the performance of Renaissance polyphony and chant. The members of the ensemble are professional and semiprofessional singers from the Chicago area—members of ensembles such as Chicago Chorale, Schola Antiqua of Chicago, The Oriana Singers, The Chicago Early Music Consort, and Chicago a cappella—who share a love of this particular repertoire.  
King Solomon's Singers' debut concert in August 2010 was recorded and released as Sacred and Profane Love. The ensemble's first full-length studio recording, Out of the Shadows: Sacred Music of Francisco Guerrero and Thomas Crecquillon, was released in July 2013. More information on the group's recordings is available at http://www.king-solomons-singers.org/Recordings.html.
