Filia Sion
Marian Repertoire by Perotin and Guillaume de Machault

Vox Clamantis, dir. Jaan-Eik Tulve (Estonia)

Formed in 1996, the ensemble Vox Clamantis received the National Culture Award of the Republic of Estonia in 2017. The ensemble comprises a diversity of musicians – singers, composers, instrumentalists and conductors – all of whom share a common interest in Gregorian chant. Aside from Gregorian chant, considered the foundation of all European professional musical culture, Vox Clamantis often performs both early polyphony and contemporary music. The ensemble’s CD recordings and performances have brought international fame, earning them multiple awards including several Diapason d’Or and a Grammy, among others.
Filia Sion is a programme that combines Gregorian chant with music by the mediaeval composers Perotin and Guillaume de Machaut. For Perotin and Machaut, Gregorian chant was an everyday musical language, and Gregorian melodies – as well as the monodic thinking behind them – are very present in their compositions. As the title suggests, the general theme of this concert is the Marian repertoire – La Messe de Nostre Dame (Mass of Our Lady), Beata viscera, Ave Maria and others.

Concert is sponsored by the Embassy of Estonia in Vilnius
