Piccola Morte Sings Music of Lassus

A new chamber chorus, Piccola Morte, launches in high gear this Friday, July 12, with a performance of works by Lassus. You've undoubtedly heard some or all of these performers:

Christopher Kula, director
Tonia D'Amelio, soprano
Danielle Reutter-Harrah, mezzo-soprano
Brian Thorsett and Eric Tuan, tenors
Nik Nackley, baritone

And you can hear a sample from rehearsal here. Lassus is about my favorite composer of vocal music from that period, and you can hear why.
