Björn Schmelzer and Graindelavoix have a thing for lamentations. Here we are presented with three Renaissance figureheads linked to Seville. Francisco Guerrero once ran the cathedral there. Cristóbal de Morales enjoyed his training there. And Alonso Lobo, Guerrero's pupil and successor at the cathedral, is hot on the heels of the Baroque with his lamentations.

About the performers

Graindelavoix is an Antwerp based, multidisciplinary company with a fascination for the voice, the genealogy of vocal repertoires and their relationships with the affective body, history and territory. The ensemble was founded in 1999 by anthropologist and ethnomusicologist Björn Schmelzer. The group does not abide by the unwritten aesthetic ‘etiquette’ of the early music world; it seeks out alternative options that enable it to give priority to expression and intensity. Björn Schmelzer was curator in residence of the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht 2018.
