Antoine Brumel’s 12 voice Earthquake Mass in Times of Disaster 

Duration 80 minutes / No intermission

In an attempt to respond to the question “what can art and music mean in a time of disaster and crisis?”, the Belgian vocal group Graindelavoix will perform a choral masterpiece – Missa Et ecce terrae motus by the Renaissance French composer Antoine Brumel. Interweaving other references, Brumel is intersected with the work of Flemish painter Pieter Bruegel and the neo-realist documentary Il Culto delle Pietre, questioning ideas like the Resurrection and the inertia of the modern world and rethinking the dialogue that can be established with the past.
