Gothic Voices

The Du Fay spectacle

Gothic Voices presents a tribute to Guillaume Du Fay, one of the greatest composers of the 15th century. The ensemble reconstructs New Year’s celebrations at the Burgundian court around the year 1470 with refined two and three-part polyphony. These vocal gems, which demand exceptional virtuosity from the singers, are alternated with instrumental adaptations dating from the same period and short improvisations. “A tribute to Du Fay in the form of a generous selection of his works, arranged to create a varied musical banquet,” wrote De Volkskrant with gusto. A concert to make your mouth water!
