About the Artist:
ModernMedieval Trio of Voices is a new, all female ensemble created by Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, former member of the world renowned vocal quartet Anonymous 4. She is joined by Martha Cluver and Eliza Bagg from the celebrated ensemble “Roomful of Teeth” to present programs that combine medieval chant and polyphony with new commissions and music from later eras.
ModernMedieval takes the vocal techniques developed by Anonymous 4 for singing this repertoire, and combines them with a fresh approach to programming that introduces this wonderful music to new audiences.
The ensemble gave a triumphant debut performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC in December 2016, and this season is presenting a program entitled The Living Word, which combines several of Hildegard of Bingen’s most celebrated chants with new commissions by some of today’s leading composers, including Joel Phillip Friedman, Daniel Thomas Davis, Caleb Burhans, and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw.
ModernMedieval will present concerts in New York, Washington D.C and Virginia during the 2017-2018 season, including a collaboration with Julianna Barwick as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival in NYC.
