Sine Nomine welcomes Joseph Fort in his first season as artistic director as they present Scenes from the Nativity.  For the first concert in its twentieth-anniversary season, Sine Nomine visits one of the most famous scenes of all time—the Nativity. The group first sets the stage by way of medieval plainchant, Renaissance polyphony and twentieth-century minimalist music written for Advent, the preceding season of anticipation and expectation. In the second half, this growing restiveness gives way at last to elation at the birth: each of Poulenc’s beautiful Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël is paired with an earlier setting of the same text by the likes of Byrd, Palestrina and Victoria.
