Circa 1600 is a chamber choir, focused upon the nexus between the Renaissance and the Baroque. The group’s primary repertoire is drawn from the 16th and 17th centuries, with occasional forays backward to the 15th century and forward up to and including the music of JS Bach. Guiding lights include Josquin Desprez, Claudio Monteverdi, and Heinrich Schütz.
