Dufay featured in concert, lecture
The 15th-century French-Burgundian composer Guillaume Dufay (1397/98-1474) will be featured in a lecture/concert to be held on Nov. 14 in Tokyo.
The event, titled "Blossoming of the Renaissance in Art and Music -- The World of Guillaum Dufay," is the second in a series of studies of early European music sponsored by NEC Corp.
The event opens with a lecture (in Japanese) by art historian Nobuyuki Senzoku on the art of the Renaissance, accompanied by slides and historical documentation.
Cappella, a professional vocal ensemble specializing in Gregorian chants and the sacred music of the Renaissance Franco-Flemish School, will then sing chansons and a tune for a mass composed by Dufay.
The event will start at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Nov. 14 at the St. Anselm Catholic Meguro Church, a five-minute walk from Meguro Station.
