Before 5.1 surround sound, there was stereo. Long before both, there was the original surround sound: the polychoral innovations of the 1500s. In a lavish program of music by the finest composers of renaissance polychoral style including Victoria, Palestrina, and Lassus, Les Canards Chantants explores and exploits the acoustical architecture of Glencairn Museum's Great Hall, and offers the audience a truly immersive concert experience. Les Canards Chantants is an American solo-voice ensemble performing renaissance polyphony, praised for their ‘elegant vocalism’ (Philadelphia Inquirer), ‘finely tuned vocals, robust singing, emotional flexibility, and sense of adventure’ (Broad Street Review), and ‘liveliness and theatricality’ (Boston Musical Intelligencer). They are proud to be Glencairn Museum's Ensemble in Residence, collaborating with the Museum to offer concerts, educational outreach, and collections-based research.
