Celestial Visions of Medieval England

May 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

This program will explore the connection between earthly and celestial forces as expressed in some distinct, compelling visions. Wind player and composer Mara Winter will lead Camerata through musings on humankind’s relationship to the universe, the mystery of creation, and the magic of the natural world, sung in all three of medieval Britain’s literary languages: Latin, English and French. The essential role of instruments in the musical fabric of medieval Britain will also featured, with originally composed instrumental monophony performed in the high medieval style, blending playfully from traditional forms of instrumental music that survive today in the British Isles.

“We will travel in an arc through each of these visions and allegory to contemplate the role which the natural world plays in representing the celestial spheres at play on Earth, the moving and unmoving spheres of the cosmos” says Mara.

An exciting chance to see the wonderful work of our close team under a new guest leadership!
