“Let us Seek with the Shepherds” with Rory McCleery.

January 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


In this workshop, Rory McCleery, Artistic Director of The Marian Consort, explores the fascinating history and rich musical lineage of Jean Mouton’s exquisite motet Quaeramus cum Pastoribus.

Composed at the very beginning of the sixteenth century, Mouton’s work would remain in the repertoire of the Cappella Sistina for over a hundred years, as well as travelling in print and manuscript as far afield as Aberdeen and Guatemala and inspiring parody compositions by several later generations of composers, including Cristobal de Morales, Pedro de Cristo and Annibale Stabile. We will be singing some of these works, as well as Mouton’s original – which Rory says is ‘one of his all-time favourite pieces!’ – as part of the workshop, with pdf scores circulated in advance.
