Follow the misadventures of an English gentleman as he embarks on a continental Grand Tour adventure in search of love and fulfillment. Our hero’s travelogue includes springtime consort songs by Alfonso Ferrabosco and William Byrd, Erasmus Widmann’s beguiling German dances dedicated to women, the wooing songs of the Italian gondolieri, and sultry airs espangnol.
Performers include Chelsie Propst, soprano; Kiri Tollaksen and Alex Opsahl, cornetto; Greg Ingles, Mack Ramsey, and Erik Schmalz, sackbut; and Charles Weaver, lute.
This concert kicks off the 2019 Madison Early Music Festival! For more information and to purchase tickets, visit their website.
