September is usually a slciw month in terms of choral concerts, but there are a few highlights that fans of the choral art won't want to miss. The Music Mondays series at the Church of the Holy Trinity features two unusual vocal ensembles this month. On Sept 10, the Renaissance women's group Voyces Past appears. This is a group of singers whose members met in high school and have been performing together for many years. Their repertoire features arrangements of sacred and secular music from the 17th century and earlier. And later in the month (Sept 24) is a concert I wrote about in my last column, by Becca Whitla and Darbazis K'alebi, singing music for women's voices from the Georgian Republic. The following day also at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Critical Mass begins its 2001- 2002 season with a performance at 12:10 of the Missa de Beata Virgine by Josquin des Prez. All proceeds will go to the Out of the Cold program.
