Next performance:

Strassen church at 4.00 on 1 December (Advent programme).

The Art of Music's most recent performances were:

- on 16 June 2024 in Strassen church: medieval and Renaissance choral music, as at the concert on 9 June, with interludes played by Vincent Soubeyran on the nyckelharpa. The retiring collection in aid of Coopération Humanitaire Luxembourg (chlux.lu) raised EUR 468.

- on 9 June 2024 at Walferdange church. The retiring collection raised EUR 380 for the charitable association Tricentenaire. A programme of medieval and Renaissance choral music was interspersed with English and French organ music from the 16th and 17th centuries played by local organist Roger Goodwyn. The medieval component consisted of music by Hildegard of Bingen, Peter Abelard and Francesco Landini, while the composers represented in the Renaissance category came mainly from the Flemish lands.

Before that, the Art of Music performed on Sunday, 25 February 2024 in the Anglican Arts Festival in Luxembourg City (settings of texts drawn from the psalms) and on Sunday, 22 October 2023 in Waldbillig church, with a programme focusing particularly on William Byrd, to mark the 400th anniversary of the composer's death. Sadly, the concert in October 2023 was the ensemble's last ever concert with Edward Seymour, who had been its bass and its true foundation for the past 30 years. We wish him well in his thoroughly deserved retirement.

The Art of Music is looking for an alto and a baritone, and there could be an opening for an additional bass. Please see under News.

The Art of Music is a small vocal ensemble based in Luxembourg, specialising particularly in the performance of music from the Renaissance. Since 1997, Josy Peschon has recorded more than 10 CDs of its concert performances, and information about them can be found on his website, Flash Compact Editioun.
