songs of the bestiary
Alkemie joins forces with composer/performer Elliot Cole in performances of new arrangements of stunning music from 14th-century Italy and newly-composed repertoire inspired by the medieval bestiary. Vieles, harp, recorders, percussion and voices evoke soaring birds, slithering reptiles, wondrous creatures, and the goddesses Diana and Venus. Serving as both mythology and Christian allegory, these fantastic visions of the animal kingdom continue to provoke the modern as well as the medieval imagination.
