The Requiem of Johannes Ockeghem (15th c.), the oldest surviving musical setting of the Mass for the Dead, will be presented by the six voice Medieval vocal ensemble Euouae (Sven Edward Olbash, director) in a special All Souls Day performance on Friday, November 2nd, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. at The National Shrine of St. Francis and in an intimate candlelight concert at San Francisco’s Swedenborgian Church on Sunday, November 4th, 2012 at 7:00 pm (note early start time).

The virtuoso singers of Euouae are no strangers to such musical firsts. Their debut performance at Old First Concerts consisted of the first composed setting of the Mass to be collected under one cover, and their followup performance of Obrecht’s Missa sub tuum praesidium was presented along with Gregorian chant from the earliest complete manuscript in the history of Western music.
