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.
Alkemie is joined for this program by Corey Shotwell and Shira Kammen.
Dufay was one of the first composers we explored - we're excited to take a fresh look at his work with Shira Kammen - the woman who inspired us to form Alkemie!
Tracy Cowart (voice, harps, percussion), Ben Matus (voice, medieval bagpipes, recorder, dulcian), David McCormick (vielle), Elena Mullins Bailey (voice, percussion), Niccolo Seligmann (vielle) and Sian Ricketts (voice, recorders, douçaines)
