Canonici: Consort of Voices
Canonici: Consort of Voices presents Madrigalia, a wide array of secular vocal works including French chansons, English and Italian madrigals, Spanish villancicos, and even American fuguing tunes. These pieces were hallmarks of communal music making in those regions during the Renaissance and, in American, the colonial era. We will explore some of the best-known secular works by Janequin, Rore, Rimonte, Morley, and Billings, among others.
Canonici is a Tacoma-based early music ensemble. It was founded in 2010 by Artistic Director Anne Lyman and features Josh Haberman, countertenor, James Brown, tenor, and Thomas Thompson, bass.
Seattle Early Dance presents “Old World/New World” an evening of dance and music from 16th-18th century Italy, France, England, and South America. Directed by Anna Mansbridge, with Charles Coldwell as Musical Director, this evening of historic music and dance will fill the senses with colorful costumes, beautiful flowing patterns through space, nimble footwork, and gorgeous music by Jean-Baptiste Lully, André Dampra, and Marin Marais.
