Quire Cleveland at Cathedral of St. John

When: Wed., April 13 2011

Founded in 2008, Quire Cleveland is a mighty group of singers that performs a cappella masterpieces from the late Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque eras. (Don't be put off by the weird spelling: It's from ye olden days, along with their repertoire.) These aren't community-chorus dabblers: The members are musical professionals, including soloists and choral members from many of the city's major churches. Tonight, you can hear them — free! — at one of the city's most beautiful spaces: The Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist at 1007 Superior Avenue. The 7:30 program, Lobet den Herrn, features German chorale music ranging from sacred songs and Renaissance polyphony to baroque works by Pachelbel and Bach; Scott Metcalf, musical director for Boston's ancient-music ensemble Blue Heron, is guest conductor. No tickets are required, no reservations are necessary, and parking is free in the Cathedral's garage at the southeast corner of Rockwell Avenue and East Ninth.
