Alkemie - Love to my Liking
Our ensemble-in-residence returns to close our 2016-2017 with their third concert at Grace Church! 
Like the troubadours in the South, the trouvères of Northern France wrote some of the most captivating vocal music of the 13th-century. In an age long before iPods, these poet-composers penned the music they wanted to hear and share. Their songs of public and private adoration wove together allusions both sacred and secular– creating mystical and spicy meditations on love and longing. Elena Mullins (soprano) has reconstructed much of this program from medieval manuscripts – bringing new life to an art form with strong oral and improvisatory traditions.
