Playing and Singing Early Polyphony: 14th - 15th century Spanish Treasures
A workshop with Alkemie for vocalists and instrumentalists.
Spend a day with the medieval vocal and instrumental ensemble Alkemie, exploring the rich repertoire of Spanish Marian music. The day is divided into four classes, each class focused on the performance challenges of one particular piece such as a villancico or one of the Cantigas de Santa Maria.
The Alkemie ensemble members - Tracy Cowart, voice and harp; David McCormick, vielle; Elena Mullins, voice; Sian Ricketts, voice and recorder; Niccolo Seligmann, vielle, lute, viola da gamba - create an exciting musical experience grounded in historical performance practice and spiced with their dedication to experimentation within the medieval tradition.
