Singers of superb musicianship and vocal allure. The New Yorker Among todays foremost vocal chamber ensembles, New York Polyphony explores the boundaries between ancient and modern music. The Grammy-nominated group will perform its provocative program Origins. Centered on the Missa Charles Darwin, Origins honors the compositional and harmonic conventions of its musical antecedents, but replaces sacred texts with excerpts from Darwins writings. Composed by Gregory Brown, the Missa Charles Darwinbecame the inspiration behind his brother Dan Browns latest novel in The Da Vinci Code series. This superb music investigates the intersection of faith and reason and the quest for a greater understanding of lifes mysteries.
