Musae is a women’s vocal ensemble based in San Francisco. The group takes its name from the original “ladies of song,” the classic nine Muses of Greek mythology. Since its founding in 2004, Musae has performed diverse and accessible music throughout the Bay Area, and continues to stretch the boundaries of traditional repertoire for women’s voices. In Carols and Hymns, Musae will explore vocal music spanning the centuries. From medieval chant, to early-Renaissance fauxbourdon, to religious songs, to contemporary compositions, this journey of a program is a way for us to celebrate the season through live music again.
