"O Rosa Bella" by Alkemie
O Rosa Bella" showcases the intricate polyphony that blossomed in fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Europe, when limpid harmonies were unveiled through the skillful entwining of individual melodies. This program features the music of Guillaume de Machaut, Johannes Ciconia, and Guillaume Dufay, whose mesmerizing lyricism continues to evoke the yearning love poetry of their texts.

Newly-formed early music ensemble Alkemie specializes in medieval music for voices and instruments. They especially enjoy the porous boundaries between the “high” and “low” music of this period – traversed repeatedly from clerics penning bawdy Latin poems in manuscript margins to courtly lovers evoking the mystical sublime.
