Scenes from the Nativity
For the first concert in its twentieth-anniversary season, Sine Nomine visits one of the most famous scenes of all time—the Nativity. The group first sets the stage by way of medieval plainchant, Renaissance polyphony and twentieth-century minimalist music written for Advent, the preceding season of anticipation and expectation.
In the second half, this growing restiveness gives way at last to elation at the birth: each of Poulenc’s beautiful Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël is paired with an earlier setting of the same text by the likes of Byrd, Palestrina and Victoria. We start with the triumphant announcement, “Hodie Christus natus est,” then dwell at the Christmas scene as the shepherds and wise men visit, before closing the concert with two much-loved settings of “O magnum mysterium.”.
