This November, Tactus SF will present a concert of Renaissance music written by people on the fringes of society. Featuring the music of ethnic and religious minorities (Lusitano, Rossi, Byrd), some of the first women to have their music published (Assandra, Aleotti, Casulana), immigrants and indigenous peoples in the New World (Zumaya, Franco, Lienas, don Franco), and convicted criminals (Phinot, Gombert, Gesualdo), we celebrate the voices of the marginalized and oppressed.

Free-will donation requested. Proof of vaccination and masks required for entry. The concert will last about an hour with no intermission. Outdoor reception to follow.

Greghesche––The Greeks in Venice

Recorded in December 2021
Free Online Video Release - Available Now


The Greek community in Venice dates back to the Middle Ages, but increased in population especially after the fall of Constantinople in 1453. These Greeks brought with them ancient writings that had been lost in the West. Tactus SF presents a set of Venetian Renaissance pieces influenced by Greeks: a polyphonic setting of a Greek Orthodox hymn, settings of texts from Virgil's Aeneid (the story of soldiers displaced by the Greek victory over Troy), music by Venetian Greek composers, and selections from a madrigal book in Greghesche, a language used by Greeks in Venice during the Renaissance.

Recorded in December 2021, we just released this short set as a video playlist, free and available to all, to celebrate our milestone of surpassing a hundred YouTube subscribers. Enjoy!
