Award-winning choral ensemble Cantori New York, led by Artistic Director Mark Shapiro, concludes its spring season on May 19 and 20 with the U.S. premiere of Dutch composer Daan Manneke’s ethereal Psalmenrequiem.
Manneke’s haunting composition was originally commissioned by Dutch musician and choral director Paul Hameleers, in memory of his late son. It was first performed in Amsterdam in 2005. The piece, structured in the typical requiem mass format, is abundant with its own twists.
Cantori is proud to present the first U.S. performance of Psalmenrequiem. They hope the program will help introduce American audiences to Manneke’s prolific body of work — not nearly as well-known in the U.S. as it deserves to be — through one of his most moving compositions.
