On Friday night, NYP returned to Saint John’s Episcopal Cathedral in Denver, CO. Not only did it give us a chance to present material from Tudor City, we got to put a lot of new music on its feet: 3 selections by Clemens non Papa (1515-1555) and the madrigalic tour de force “La guerre” by Clement Janequin (1475-1558).
The audience greeted our new selections warmly, we emerged largely unscathed 🙂 and we received a terrific review from the Denver Post:
“In a music world that seems ever more amplified, digitized and engineered, it is not surprising that there is a growing hunger for an antidote: something natural, direct and sure.
Perfectly filling the bill is New York Polyphony, an all-male vocal quartet that relies solely on the human voice — simple, unfiltered and unenhanced.”
And in case you wanted to share in our new music bonanza, here’s an excerpt… recorded live on Friday.
