Groves of Antiquity
Ancient Myths in Baroque Guise
October 5 - 7, 2007

Delightful French and Italian cantatas tell tales from ancient myths about the desires, foilbles, and supernatural powers of gods and demi-gods. Baroque instrumental music for transverse flute, violin, viola da gamba, theorbo, and harpsichord transports listeners to Arcadian splendor in works by Vivaldi, Monteclair, Leclair, and Rameau.
