Renowned ensembles from all over the globe explore the musical riches of the pre-Classical era, from Medieval chant to Renaissance polyphony to Baroque orchestral music.
With radiant harmonies and cascading polyphony, early music has beguiled Miller audiences since the theater’s founding. Today’s masters of period performance bring this ancient music to life, each employing their own signature style. This season, we’ll hear intricate vocal works from England, Italy, and Spain; a French Baroque setting of the myth of Ulysses; and a dark, dramatic lament, performed by candlelight. Most performances in this series are held offsite at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, where listeners can experience this glorious music in a setting much like the cathedrals where Tallis, Byrd, Monteverdi, and others would have originally performed it.
