Great Musick's Mysteries: The Exquisite Consorts

In a time when new worlds were being discovered, musical pioneers were also charting new territories.  Experience the adventure of music from the Age of Discovery when harmonic boundaries
were pushed and uncharted melodic lands were traversed. Your senses will be delighted by the unusual sounds and textures of 17th-century music by John Jenkins and brothers Henry and William Lawes.

Local soprano Melissa Harvey will also sing the beautiful poetry of John Milton, Robert Herrick, and Ben Jonson. Fittingly, we will also be exploring a new venue for Catacoustic, at the lovely jewel box of Trinity Episcopal in Covington.

Musicians include Annalisa Pappano (Artistic director, treble viol), James Brown (bass viol, Austin), Elizabeth Motter (Baroque triple harp,Cincinnati), David Walker (theorbo, Chicago), and Melissa Harvey (soprano, Cincinnati).

Preview a harp consort by William Lawes here.
