Upcoming Interest Sessions
September 28, 8pm ET/5pm PT
Karen Burciaga & Dan Meyers – “Pilgrims’ Progress: Creating Music for the Plimoth Settlers 1590-1650”
Boston-based ensemble Seven Times Salt explores the process of creating a compelling concert program around a historical topic for which very little musical evidence exists. We’ll explain how we pieced together a musical narrative for the Plimoth settlers for the period 1590-1650 drawing on works by Dowland, Morley, van Eyck, and Campion, collections of catches and part songs published in England and the Netherlands, songs from the Elizabethan theater captured in Shakespeare’s plays, traditional English country dance tunes, and our original setting of a text by Thomas Morton of Merrymount–along with a healthy dose of imagination! Along the way we’ll share musical examples from our recent album “Pilgrims’ Progress,” recorded in the historic 1717 Meetinghouse in West Barnstable, MA.
