The King’s Counterpoint

“Angelus ad Virginem” is a candlelight concert by Charleston, SC-based vocal ensemble The King’s Counterpoint. The program is filled to overflowing with choral music for Advent and Christmas from across the centuries – from the austere beauty of plainsong chant to the ornate joy of the Baroque, from some of the earliest known compositions to works composed right up to today.

Co-founded in 2014 by Dr. Judith Overcash Acres and David Acres, The King’s Counterpoint is a unique professional vocal ensemble that specializes in the performance of sacred and secular music from the Middle Ages through the modern era, combining polyphony, literature, art and dialogue to create exceptional music presented within an historical context.

Based in Charleston, South Carolina, and utilizing vocalists from in and around the Lowcountry, KCP has as its primary mission the exploration of the variety and beauty found in a cappella vocal music: from chant to 20th-century, medieval carols to the avant-garde, The King’s Counterpoint is committed to the creation of delightful programs designed to entertain, educate, and above all to stir the soul.

Friday, January 31 — 7:30 p.m.
A Golden Wire

In “No Noise or Silence: Music of the English Restoration,” musicians from A Golden Wire offer audiences a peek into the music which wrought a new birth for English music. Audiences will be enticed not only by Henry Purcell’s songs, but the viol music of Marin Marais, airs of Jean Baptiste Lully, and an early cantata by Louis-Nicolas Clérambault. A Golden Wire is a period instrument ensemble based in New York City, specializing in music of England and the British Isles, combining the baroque’s most unique and subtle instruments to bring the past to life. Drawing on their expertise in the areas of historical performance, they aim not only charm the listeners, but transport them to another place and time.

In Splendoribus Sanctorum: Sacred Music from Venice

The splendor of St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, with its many lofts and arches, inspired generations of musicians to fill it with glorious sound. The works of Giovanni Gabrieli and Claudio Monteverdi represent the summit of this school, with writing for multiple choirs, early brass instruments, and strings. The final concert of St. Paul‘s 2019-20 Artist Series will feature music of these two composers on period instruments, featuring members of the Washington Cornett & Sackbutt Ensemble, North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, Chattanooga Bach Choir, and St. Paul‘s Choirs, all in the beautiful, newly restored Nave of St. Paul‘s.
