Philippe Herreweghe; Collegium Vocale Gent

A refined sound and perfect vocal blend are among the many qualities that define Philippe Herreweghe’s Collegium Vocale Gent as one of the world’s most accomplished vocal ensembles. Exploiting the warm, resonant acoustics of The Chan Centre, they will perform “The Tears of Saint Peter” by Renaissance composer Orlande de Lassus, a cycle of twenty exquisite sacred madrigals that powerfully express grief, regret and forgiveness in music of moving simplicity and consoling contemplation.
