OF NOTE

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.

Advance tickets are 2,500 yen for adults and can be purchased by calling (03) 5802-9990, (03) 5815-5452 or (03) 3952-5515). To obtain 1,000 yen student tickets, call Cappella's secretariat at (03) 3350-2470 or e-mail otsuka@fonsfloris.com
