Enjoy Renaissance and Baroque music with the “raucous” and “refined” group les soûls d’amour on May 25th at Parish of the Epiphany, 70 Church Street, Winchester. The music starts at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $25 at the door; refreshment is included.
les soûls d’amour explores stories written centuries ago that still resonate with us today: of love in its trials and joys or of the camaraderie of sharing conversation and a drink with beloved friends. Repertoire ranges from the feisty and flirty arias of Purcell and Monteverdi to the bawdiest drinking songs of the German Baroque and Spanish Renaissance, proving that “antique composers and their modern day advocates could meet in the barroom and share great jokes” (Boston Music Intelligencer). The program on May 25, Love and War, is “a bombastic program of battle and ballads, featuring Purcell, Monteverdi, Rameau, and William Byrd.”
Members of the group include Jacob Street, harpsichordist and artistic director, is a former chorister and member of the Parish of the Epiphany and is currently Director of Music at St. Paul’s on the Green in Norwalk, Connecticut. His colleagues include Molly Netter, soprano; Andrew Padgett, bass-baritone and hurdy-gurdy; Alana Youssefian, baroque violin; and David Ellis, viola da gamba. les soûls d’amour is the ensemble-in-residence at the Seabury Academy for Music and the Arts in Norwalk, Connecticut.
