Princeton and Yale present Cappella Romana in
"Hellenes and Music of the Renaissance"
This April, just after Easter (Pascha) and before its series concerts in Portland and Seattle, Cappella Romana will appear at Princeton and Yale Universities in a program called "Hellenes and the Music of the Renaissance."
Founding artistic director Alexander Lingas leads Cappella Romana in a program of works in Greek, Latin, and French born from meetings between East and West during the 15th and 16th centuries, including music by Manuel Gazes, John Plousiadenos, Guillaume Du Fay, and the Cretan Franghiskos Leontaritis (1518?-1572?), the son of a Greek mother and Italian father who eventually sang in Venice under Willaert in San Marco and in Munich under Lassus.
