A Tale of Two Cities

The Music of Florence and Venice

September 13 – 15, 2024

Both Florence and Venice were European power centers in the 16th and 17th centuries. Both also had exciting musical cultures. The Consort will offer pieces by important composers who worked in each city: Claudio Monteverdi and his colleagues who created at San Marco in Venice, and Florentine composer Francesca Caccini, among others.

Mass for Christmas Eve

Music of Charpentier

December 6 – 15, 2024

Composed around 1694, Charpentier’s Messe de minuit pour Noël is based on lovely and folky Christmas noëls. Charpentier achieved a delightful balance of graceful dance rhythms and sophisticated harmony. The Consort will accompany the Charpentier work with rarely played Italian baroque Christmas music and other festive pieces to ring in the season.

The Love Birds

Chaucer’s A Parlement of Foules

February 14 – 16, 2025

Geoffrey Chaucer’s narrative poem A Parlement of Foules contains the first mention of Saint Valentine as a patron of lovers. Chaucer’s narrative poem will be framed with music from 14th-century England and France, and a newly-commissioned piece by composer Juri Seo.

Kings and Commonwealth

The English Civil War

May 2 – 4, 2025

Music from the Jacobean court and the period of the English Civil War, reflecting on the political and religious upheavals in England. The Folger Consort will highlight political ballads focussed on Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot, plus music from the courts of James I and Charles I, including political songs from Thomas D’Urfey’s Pills to Purge Melancholy.
