“Sweet sounds the vielle, shriller the flute. A lad and a maiden sing to the lute.
He’ll touch the harp for thee, she’ll sing the air. They will bring wine for thee, choice wine and rare.”
Experience the sounds of 14th-century France and Italy! Hear stories depicting the sounds of a town band as well as the chaos of putting out a village fire! Listen to passionate songs of love and bounce to the lively rhythms of dance music that still speak to us today!
With Stephanie Sheffield, soprano; Gary Berkenstock, recorders; Joel Spears, lute; and Phillip W. Serna, vielle.
Acclaimed for its “imaginative” programming and “delicate, flawlessly-performed music”, the Chicago Early Music Consort recreates the rich and diverse sounds of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and early Baroque chamber repertoire in an historically-informed manner. The Consort appears throughout the Midwest and has performed live on Chicago’s premiere fine arts station, 98.7WFMT. Programs are built around interesting historical and social themes to which modern audiences can easily relate. For more information, visit www.ChicagoEarlyMusicConsort.org.
