The musicians of Collectio will be performing an exciting program of early polyphonic music on Friday, April 10th, at 8 PM.  It will take place at Christ and St. Stephen's Church--122 West 69th Street.  For directions, look at the church's website--
Admission is free.

Polyphony--the combining of multiple musical lines--has been called the major contribution of western culture to music.  While its origins are shouded in mystery, it can be traced back to the early middle ages.  Our concert will present pieces that are often mentioned in textbooks, but rarely performed.  Among the pieces featured will be pieces by Leoninus and Chypre, instrumental dances from England, motets from the Bamberg Codex, and a complete performance of the Tournai Mass--the earliest surviving polyphonic setting of the ordinary.
