|VocaMe is the new "all star" ensemble consisting of some of Early Music's top singers under the direction of well renowned Early Music interpreter Michael Popp (Estampie/QNTAL). They will make their debut with the production of the first recording devoted to Kassia, a 9th Century female composer from the Byzantine era. Kassia preceded Hildegard von Bingen, who up until now was believed to be the first known female composer of liturgical music, by about three centuries with musical ideas seemingly far ahead of her time. Together with Diane Touliatos, the sole scholar on Kassia, they will present the world premiere of all currently transcribed works by Kassia to date.
On 23.January, VocaMe will have it's debut concert in Frankfurt at the Kirche Mutter vom Guten Rat.
