FALSTAFF AND SHAKESPEARE

We are proud to sponsor Verdi's Falstaff in conjunction with the celebration of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in 2016, because the opera is based on Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and scenes from his Henry IV.

WHAT IS THE OPERA ABOUT

Falstaff, the title character is running out of money and looking for a quick fix. So he sets his sights on two rich women, and writes them love letters. But he doesn't fool anyone, and ultimately the "fat Knight" learns his lesson.

His Majestie’s Clerkes: The Song of Songs

Details:
Aug. 13, 7:30 pm  -  In Concert at St John Cantius Church
His Majestie's Clerkes is a professional male vocal ensemble specialising in 15th to 17th century unaccompanied music as well as modern works and commissions. For this their debut concert, the six-man ensemble will perform early and modern music drawn from the rich repertoire dedicated to Our Lady, as well as from the biblical Song of Songs. The music performed will range from the early 16th century, typified by the work of Josquin des Prez, the master composer of the High Renaissance, to the British 21st century composer Howard Skempton with his beautiful minimalist setting of words from the Song of Songs. Under the overall artistic direction of countertenor Richard Childress, a Chicago area native who now lives and works in Great Britain, the ensemble consists of countertenors, tenors and basses. This voicing enables the group to come very close to the sound and performing pitch of early vocal music. The singers come together from Chicago, Great Britain and New York, their voices chosen to produce a rich, smooth and superlative sound which, when combined with the beauty of Chicago's historic St John Cantius Church, will be an unmissable event. Mr Childress was the founder of the original Chicago ensemble His Majestie's Clerkes, which subsequently became the choir "Bella Voce".

Members: Richard Childress, countertenor; Charles Humphries, countertenor, Nathaniel Adams, tenor; Matthew Dean, tenor;
Michael Hawes, bass; Jay Tuttle, bass
