The Hilliard Ensemble

Founded in 1974, this British a cappella quartet is one of the world's foremost vocal groups, bringing their ensemble virtuosity to bear on great works of the Medieval, Renaissance, and contemporary periods. For their Kennedy Center debut, The Hilliard Ensemble performs a program of vocal music by two quintessential Renaissance composers: Orlando de Lassus's four-part Requiem Mass, interspersed with motets and antiphons by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

This program is performed without intermission and lasts approximately 65 minutes.
