Unforgettable originals by forgotten composers and the masterpieces they inspired
Collectively Directed by the Artistic Associates
Unfortunately, The Toronto Consort must cancel its production of Duly (un)Noted, which was previously scheduled for release this spring. The extended stay-at-home order and restrictions on indoor concert filming in the Province of Ontario have made the production impossible for us to proceed.
Some of the most luminous gems in our treasure-trove of Early Music are works based on pre-existing, unattributed melodies whose creators remain un-noted by history: this art of re-purposing reached new and glittering heights in the 15th and 16th centuries, thanks to composers such as Josquin des Prez and Johannes Ockeghem. In Duly (Un)noted, the voices and instruments of the Consort will trace the remarkable collaborations, sometimes separated by decades or even centuries, between unforgettable originals and the glorious songs, dances and polyphonic masterpieces they inspired.
