Choral Concert ' The Book of Love' by Cappella Martialis

Renaissance choir Cappella Martialis diverts from their usual repertoire of sacred music, to present secular love songs from the era as well as arrangements of retro pop hits. Here's more information:

12th July 2015
10 Square @ Orchard Central,
10th Floor, Orchard Central,
181 Orchard Road, S(238896)

If you've only heard us singing sacred repertoire, join us as we explore songs of life and love, from times ancient and modern, for voices and instruments.

The programme will include music from Late Mediæval France, Renaissance England, Early Romantic Vienna, as well as the 20th Century. If you've ever thought Mediæval and Renaissance music boring, wait till you see the lyrics to some of our songs, some of which are being performed in Singapore for the first time. We’ll be singing in English, Mediæval Occitan, Renaissance French, Italian, German, and Cantonese Chinese (!), Full translations will be provided.
