One indication of the good health of vocal music specialising in the early music repertoire is the birth of Cor Cererols, which is conducted by Marc Díaz, also an organist, and comprises already very experienced young voices.
Included in subscriptions
The three composers featured in the programme, as well as the choir itself and its conductor, are linked to the monastery and choir of Montserrat: Joan Cererols, the most important and influential composer of the very early Catalan Baroque era, studied there under Joan Marc, the musician who succeeded the great Castilian polyphonist Tomás Luis de Victoria as organist of the Convent of Las Descalzas Reales in Madrid. In spite of having lived in the 19th and 20th centuries, Anselm Ferrer’s music was greatly influenced by the best Renaissance polyphony, which he consumed in copious amounts during his stay in Rome.
