Convivium Musicum 23/24 Season Preview:

Come along with Convivium as we travel all over the map this year! Our season will open with “O Quam Gloriosum: Music of the Late Spanish Renaissance,” where we will present works by Victoria, Morales, and Guerrero. Our winter concert, “Music for a French Cathedral,” will feature works by Ockeghem and Josquin, including several movements from Ockeghem’s Missa pro defunctis and Josquin’s beloved motet Déploration sur la mort d’Ockeghem. We will also celebrate the 550th anniversary of the passing of Dufay. Our spring concert, “Draw On Sweet Night,” will feature a variety of composers all meditating on the thoughts and emotions that arise between dusk and dawn, including Wilbye, Lasso, Aleotti, Palestrina, and more. We hope you will join us for a glorious season of music!

2021 Virtual Concerts

The Measure of My Days

Join Convivium Musicum for an online concert exploring themes of hope, resilience, and community in the face of suffering, injustice, and isolation. The program, The Measure of My Days, explores how composers of the Renaissance drew on familiar poetry – the Psalms – to communicate these themes that still have resonance in our own time, especially in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and contemporary movements for social justice. To underscore this link, we include readings of contemporary poetry inspired by the program alongside our musical offerings.

Professionally recorded in Harvard-Epworth Church in Cambridge, The Measure of My Days presents Renaissance-era musical settings of psalm texts by Josquin de Prez, Orlandus Lassus, Johann Hermann Schein and others, alongside poetry written in our own day.

This event premiered on Saturday, June 26, 2021.

We are also very pleased to have been part of the 2021 Boston Early Music Festival Fringe concert series with an abridged version of this project.
