New York Polyphony




7pm Introduction, Thomashaus




Thomaskirche (St. Thomas’s Church)


Venue details




Despite their origins in the fast-paced city that never sleeps, their musical preferences focus on the sensitive polyphonic singing of Renaissance and medieval Europe. Founded in 2006, New York Polyphony is a male quartet whose sound, performance and repertoire have earned them both an excellent reputation and two Grammy nominations for early music to boot. Their Leipzig debut at the a cappella festival will impressively showcase highlights from the group’s discography. They’ll be performing a selection of mainly religious English and French-Flemish polyphonic ‘classics’ along with modern-day compositions by the likes of Cyrillus Kreek and Andrew Smith.
