ModernMedieval Voices - A Midwinter Feast at Caramoor
*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 12/14/2019
This all-female vocal trio brings to Caramoor the wondrous sounds of medieval chant and polyphony. Join us for a holiday program of music from the British Isles, featuring beloved English medieval and Renaissance carols, including There is No Rose, A Virgin Unspotted, and Green Groweth the Holly (attributed to Henry VIII). Also included are new arrangements of some old favorites, including In the Bleak Midwinter, O Little Town of Bethlehem, and The Holly and the Ivy. The program will include new settings of medieval texts, including a commission by acclaimed British composer Andrew Lovett, Winter Wakeneth, as well as the premiere of a setting by Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek of the beloved Medieval poem There is no Rose, sung in Sean Nos style to the tune of an ancient Irish folk-ballad, The Lamentations of Deidre. The Rosen House, splendidly decorated for the holidays, will be open for self-guided tours between the two performances.
