Shades of Grey is presented by The Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts, as part of the 2013 programme for the Infecting the City Public Arts Festival.
Old and new converge with the Cape Consort’s exploration of early vocal repertoire in Shades of Grey, a fractured audioscape of late medieval European and 19th-century colonial culture in historically informed interpretation.
The music can be perceived as if through an aural kaleidoscope, which even though it fragments the image, unites the fragments into a pattern: the original veneration for the saint in 15th-century Münster, Grey’s inclusion of the music in the collection during his governance of the Cape Colony, today’s research on early music and its historically informed performance.
Slave Church in Long Street @ 12:30 on Thursday 14 March and
