Awesome Is This Place

In-Person & On-Demand Concert

Listen to the evocative sounds of today’s leading medieval music performers. This new program presents Alkemie’s creative arrangements of favorite works by Guillaume DuFay – considered the foremost European composer by his 15th-century contemporaries – alongside the compositions of modern medieval luminary Shira Kammen. Though written centuries ago, many of the texts on this program have a strong sense of place recognizable to us today - like a beloved home, a garden, or a place of spiritual worship. We also appreciate that Dufay was one of the few composers of the time to set poetic texts from the female perspective.
