If you liked the Josquin des Prez presention last January (“Renaissance & Response: Early Voices”), you’ll love Path of Miracles. Talbot’s inspiring work lies directly in the same evolutionary path, both musically and spiritually, that began with the polyphony composers. Our Stage Manager has been hinting at some dramatic effects for the Austin performances, a processional quality enhanced with state-of-the-art lighting (for the evening concerts). Southwest premiere, January 19-22. More info / Tickets
