for new photos of the Asteria concert performed at the Byron Colby Barn, Grayslake, Illinois, on October 1, 2006.
With sacred and secular love songs from the late Middle Ages by Guillaume Dufay, Gilles Binchois, Estienne Grossin, Robert Morton, and anonymous.
Featuring members of Asteria: Sylvia Rhyne, soprano; and Eric Redlinger, tenor and lute.
Asteria burst onto the national Early Music scene in 2004, winning Early Music America's first Unicorn Prize for Medieval and Renaissance Music with a performance heralded by the New York Times as "intimate and deeply communicative...meltingly beautiful." This engaging duo brings out the passion and emotional impact of late medieval vocal and instrumental music with timeless love songs of wide appeal, transporting their listeners back to the age of chivalry.
