In this sixth collaboration of the Cathedral Choir with world music ensemble Rose of the Compass, we explore the glories of Constantinople, now Istanbul. From chants and motets composed upon the transfer of this great city from Christian to Muslim hands in the 15th century, to extraordinary modern-day arrangements of indigenous folk songs sung in Turkish, this concert promises to be an uplifting and inspiring look at the culture emanating from this seat of the Ottoman Empire.
