The Case Baroque Ensembles, directed by Julie Andrijeski, and The Case Consort of Viols, directed by Debra Nagy, will present Milk and Honey: Sumptuous music of the 17th century this Sunday, October 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Harkness Chapel.
The title of the program, “Milk and Honey: Sumptuous music of the 17th century” is derived from the text of one song that talks of the milk and honey on the tongue (of a lover). Another song portrays Mary’s madness over the fate of her child, Jesus, and in another an almost erotic love for Jesus. Hence the “sumptuousness.” This program will include voices and instruments from the violin and viol families and will feature Tracy Cowart, Elena Mullins, and Sian Ricketts, sopranos and Christine Wilkinson on baroque violin.
This event is free and open to the public.
