CHANTICLEER: No Mean Reward—Chanticleer and the Golden Fleece

Berkeley Festival & Exhibition

Berkeley, CA, United States

This is a past event


On January 10, 1430, Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy founded the chivalric confraternity known as the Order of the Golden Fleece. Dedicated to “the exaltation of the faith and the Holy Church,” “the honor of St. Andrew,” and “the practice of virtues and good habits,” the Order and its members supported the creation of some of Europe’s most exquisite polyphony in the late 1400s. In this concert, GRAMMY Award-winning ensemble Chanticleer will present a program that includes music by Guillaume Du Fay, Johannes Ockeghem, Antoine Busnois, and Cristóbal Morales. Founded in 1978 as an affiliate of The San Francisco Early Music Society, then also in its infancy, this is Chanticleer’s first appearance at the Festival in over a decade and a half. We are delighted to return to SFEMS’s roots in this special concert!
