Motets of Johannes Ciconia (1390-1405)

Any self-respecting music festival ought to devote substantial space to ancient music, preferably featuring enticing pieces played by historically informed ensembles. This evening it is the turn of Mala Punica, a mixed-voice choir founded by Pedro Memelsdorff in 1987, which has come to specialise mostly in the late-medieval Ars subtilior style. The group has won numerous international prizes for the quality of its performances, underpinned by passionate musicological research into ancient sources. This concert focuses on the Flemish motets of Johannes Ciconia, which blend lush northern European polyphony with Venetian singability.
