This program features songs and dances by Henry Purcell, corrente by Giovanni Battista Buonamente, songs from Claudio Monteverdi’s Scherzi Musicali, and cantatas by Georg Philipp Telemann and Antonio Caldara. It showcases Cape Cod’s premier soprano Joan Kirchner, accompanied by the instrumentalists of Courante.
