The Miller Theatre at Columbia University School of the Arts will showcase New York Polyphony as part of its 2019-20 Early Music series.

The concert, set for Nov. 9, 2019 at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, will feature famed male vocal quartet in a wide range of music from the Renaissance. The program will feature music by Leonel Power, Thomas Byttering, Andrew Smith, John Dunstable, John Pyamour, John Plummer, Francisco Peñalosa, Pedro de Escobar, Francisco Guerrero, and Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla.

There will also be a number of works from the “Worcester Fragments,” many of them written by anonymous composers.

New York Polyphony recently unveiled its new album “Peñalosa – Lamentation” which features music by late 15th and early 16th-century composers Peñalosa, Escobar, and Guerrero.
