Following its acclaimed premiere in France in 2016, this unique concert of a cappella sacred music, curated by Thuthuka Sibisi, will be heard in Cape Town for the first time. Juxtaposing ancient and modern music from Europe and Africa, Grace Notes intersperses sacred compositions by Byrd, Palestrina, Duruflé and Pärt with religious music drawn from Xhosa, Venda, Zulu and Swahili traditions. A moving reflection on the yearning to express spirituality through music, Grace Notes uncovers lines of connection across continents and centuries.
