Arts Partner: Music Before 1800
Five-part medieval ensemble
Rosa das Rosas: Songs for the Virgin Mary
Five East Coast musicians founded Alkemie in 2013 to explore both the sublime and the earthly realms of medieval repertory. This Spanish program from the 13th and 14th centuries features singing and playing of multiple instruments—harp, recorders, vielle, and percussion. The pieces honor the Virgin Mary—most beautiful rose, miraculous healer, dragon slayer, and powerful intercessor during the upheaval of war.
