Several Deer Park educators – including Dr. Jeff Dailey, the district’s Director of Fine and Performing Arts, as well as teachers Gregory Gullotti, and Gregg Romano performed a free program of early polyphonic music at Christ and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church at 122 W. 69 Street, New York, New York on Friday, April 10 as part of the Collectio Musicorum ensemble.

Polyphony, the combining of multiple musical lines, can be traced back to the early Middle Ages and has been called the major contribution of Western culture to music. This concert, which also featured musicians Patrick Fennig, Tim Keeler and Richard Lippold, included pieces that are often mentioned in textbooks but rarely performed, such as selections by Leoninus and Chipre, the latter accompanied by a trio of gemshorns; instrumental dances from 13th century England; three “Robin” motets from the Bamberg Codex; and a complete performance of the Tournai Mass, the first complete surviving setting of the mass ordinary.
