An Exploration of the Delights and Torment of Love
Sunday, May 21 at 3:00 PM in the Southminster sanctuary
Exploring love’s delights and torments, Ignea Strata presents a varied concert including early French chansons by Guillaume de Machaut, Gilles Binchois, and Jean Guyot; settings from the Song of Solomon by Heinrich Isaacand Johannes de Lymburgia; seldom-heard works of baroque composer and Benedictine nun Chiara Marguerita Cozzolani; selections from the searingly beautiful 20th-century work Lobpreis der Liebe of Knut Nystedt; and the world-premiere of Sonnets from the Portuguese composed for Ignea Strata by our own L.V. Wood.
FOUR VIBRANT VOICES WEAVE TOGETHER, CREATING SEAMLESS LAYERS OF EXQUISITE SOUND.
Performing music from the medieval era to the latest contemporary repertoire, IGNEA STRATA offers a fresh perspective on old favorites and presents new and previously unheard music from composers ancient and modern.
