In July and August, the Monastery is programming a cycle of musical evenings featuring religious, Renaissance and polyphonic music
The Monastery of Pedralbes is an exceptional place to listen to music, with the resonance and the feeling of intimacy that are perfectly suited to the sounds of early Renaissance polyphony, the popular songs of the low Middle Ages and 19th century chamber music and lieder. So music fans, and expecially ancient music fans, have a treat in store at the monastery every Thursday evening in July and August.
The cycle will end on 31 August with the 'Sound of Women' program, which marks the end of the exhibition 'Silenced Women', which has been on display in the Monastery in recent months. But before that, there are four more evenings featuring a selection from the repertoires of Spanish religious and Renaissance music. The first date, on 14 July, is 'Nosotros somos amorosos', a selection of works from the Cançoner de Calàbria and the Cançoner de Gandia, featuring music of the 16th century court of Aragon, played by the formaation Lucentum XVI . The following function is "Harp Tunes: Spanish songs of the golden age for voice and harp ( 20July), while the third offers "Great masters of Iberian polyphony" during the reigns of the Austrian dynasties. On 3 August, 'The Ladder to Heaven' will feature the liturgical musics of three great religions.
You'll find more information about the cycle on the of the Monastery of Pedralbes website, where you can also book your tickets.
