For their first in-person concert since February, 2020, that Daniel Johnson
and his Texas Early Music Project
are presenting music from really olde England
– from, that is, the 12th century up to the end of the early Renaissance
(around 1450).There are only a few Middle English songs from before 1350 that have remained intact until now, and TEMP is performing eight of them. Guests Christopher LeCluyse
(tenor), Ryland Angel
(tenor and countertenor), and Mary Springfels
(vielle and citole) are accompanied by ten singers and four instrumentalists
.This welcome-back concert has the single lines of Medieval repertoire, the rich harmonies of the contenance angloise, and a couple of delightful Medieval English dances as well.Also: Period instruments, timeless voices, and our highest recommendation.
Oct. 2-3. Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 3pm. $25-30 ($5, students at-the-door).
