Sing You After Me: Wondrous Rounds and Canons

Rose2Sing 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.

Previous performances of this program earned standing ovations and the theme “we’re running out of programs”!

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 200 videos.
