Alkemie members sing and play vieles, recorders, harps, and percussion in a festive program celebrating Twelfth Night—the conclusion of Christmastide. Songs from Spain, Germany, England, France and Prague celebrate the Virgin Mary and the birth of Jesus, the travels of the wise men, and the joys of the season. This centuries-spanning program features the celestial works of  Hildegard von Bingen, lusty Cantigas de Santa Maria, traditional English carols, and medieval French dances. Highlights include traditional favorites such as “There is no Rose of such vertu” and “Riu, riu chiu.”
