Sing You After Me: Wondrous Rounds & Canons

Sing you after me is a program of rounds and canons from the 13th to the end of the 19th centuries. Full of fun, interesting, and appealing music, it offers an enormous range of musical styles and textures.

And the composers of rounds and canons may surprise you: Byrd, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven & Brahms are among the master composers who contributed to the repertoire! Enjoy the captivating sounds of one voice following another in ingenious — but also sublimely beautiful — harmony.

November 2015 performances of this program at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist and Painesville United Methodist Church earned standing ovations and the theme “we’re running out of programs”! Now there’s a(nother) chance to hear this marvelous music in the fabulous acoustics of St. Paul’s Akron.

Get in the mood for this concert with a visit to Quire’s YouTube channel, for “When Jesus wep’t the falling tear” by William Billings and “Nesciens mater” by Jean Mouton, among more than 175 videos.
