About the Event

Music from De Morales, Josquin, Tubal, Weerbeke and Gregorian chant.

In 2016, Utopia premiered the 7 lamentations of Cristóbal de Morales. These beautiful lamentations, set by one of the greatest Spanish polyphonists, cry out the destruction of Jerusalem in Biblical poetry. For this renewed concert program, Utopia places four of Morales' lamentations within the "Triduum Sacrum". The tidal liturgy is given a special interpretation in these three days. The "matins" (matutinae), the first tide in the very early morning, consists of three nocturnes. Every night consists of short antiphones, psalms, sung readings (during the "Triduum Sacrum" these are the Lamentations) and the so-called responsories. In addition to the Lamentations you will hear plainchant from the "Passionarum Toletanum". Furthermore, Utopia selected a psalm and some response lines from work by Josquin Desprez and Gaspar van Weerbeke, predecessors of Morales at the papal court chapel, and Adriaen Tubal, a contemporary of Morales and working in Italy and Antwerp.
