A cappella Concert: Tenebrae Responsora

After its celebrated performance in 2016, the Belgian vocal ensemble graindelavoix will come to the Marktkirche on 26 May and perform the complete Responses in a mammoth concert lasting four hours.

The cycle was intended for the Holy Week services. The texts tell of the suffering and death of Jesus, and are among the most emotional of the Catholic liturgy. In the performance by graindelavoix the polyphonic Responses are supplemented by liturgical chants, as was usual during church services in the Renaissance.

Boundaries of Concentration

The aim here is not so much a historical reconstruction as to put the audience into a meditative state and to deliberately transcend the boundaries of attention and concentration. At the same time the performance is enlivened by singing the individual pieces in motion or from different places within the Marktkirche. The seating allows the audience to follow these movements as they please. In this way graindelavoix puts an originally liturgical work into a modern performance concept which enables listeners to bridge the historical distance in the experience of the moment.
