A new Alkemie program featuring 15th-century French songs from the female or non-gendered poetic perspective. These pieces, wrenchingly emotional and playful by turns, provide a counternarrative to the pedestals & pitfalls of courtly love . . . a paradigm with a legacy that complicates partnerships to this day.
This snippet of Delahaye's “O dieu d'amours” is from our Sweet Friendship program - but as the only other feminine-voiced chanson we've performed from the 15th century (to date!), it provides a glimpse into the pool we'll be exploring.
with Tracy Cowart (voice, harps), David McCormick (vielle), Elena Mullins (voice, percussion), Niccolo Seligmann (vielles, psaltery, gittern), and Sian Ricketts (voice, recorders, douçaines)
Alkemie's NYC Concerts are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.
