What better place to begin our 2017-2018 Time Pieces season than in Paris? Renowned for its popular music of France from the 16th and 17th centuries, Paris City Limits regales audiences with exciting dances, popular folksongs, dazzling chansons, and heartfelt songs of love and melancholy by the masters and by some relative unknowns!
There will be lively instrumental dances by Attaignant, Breton folk music, and chansons which deal with scenes of daily life: lovesickness, marital arguments, romantic friskiness, and more. TEMP’s 20-voice chorus will perform Janequin’s spectacular musical chanson about the birds (Le chant des oyseaux), as well as his even more stunning depiction of a battle (La Guerre) complete with trumpet calls, cannon fire and the cries of victoire!
Featured are special guest artists Mary Springfels (viola da gamba), Peter Maund (percussion), countertenor Ryland Angel (New York) and mezzo Erin Calata (Seattle), who join TEMP’s regular choir and orchestra as TEMP explores both the rustic and the sophisticated sides of Parisian and country life in the 16th and 17th centuries.
Venez, y’all!
