Chanticleer…Love, always

23 January 2021
Tickets: €20-€30

The yearning for love underlies almost everything in life and has been described in song since there was song. In “Love, always”  Chanticleer’s twelve virtuosic male voices, ranging from soprano to bass, offer sublime early depictions of divine love by Palestrina, Byrd, and Laloux and earthly love by  Gibbons, Morley, Wilbye, and Byrd. Between then and now are the twentieth-century masters Martinu, Daniel-Lesur, and Tavener.  No less fervent outpourings about love from pop legends Keane and Elbow, and singer-songwriter Matt Alber (a former Chanticleer singer) will include Whitney Houston’s hit “I wanna dance with somebody.” Whatever the century or the language, it’s all about love!
