Wonderful, early American songs and hymns, circa 1790-1840, most of them from old prints and manuscripts of Newburyport, Boston, and New Hampshire, performed by The Boston Camerata's superb soloist ensemble, directed by Anne Azéma.
The concert includes a special group of rare Shaker songs, mainly from unpublished manuscript sources in Sabbathday Lake, Maine.
The prophecies, tribulations, and triumph of the young Biblical hero Daniel, as retold in music from medieval Beauvais . Probably the most powerful and musically evocative of all the medieval mystery plays, in a splendid new production conceived by Anne Azéma.
To celebrate our 60th Anniversary, our Christmas program features music from our very own tradition. From the early years of the American republic, and from a wide range of early tune books and manuscripts, a generous selection of carols, New England anthems, Southern folk hymns and religious ballads for the season.
Back by popular demand! An interfaith celebration unlike any other. Discover with us the common musical roots of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, and the astonishing and beautiful interactions among these traditions. Our program includes elements of Jewish liturgy, Gregorian and Koranic chant, songs and texts of Jewish minstrels, Sephardic folksong, medieval Spanish Cantigas, and Judaeo-Islamic music from the ancient Andalusian tradition. The Boston Camerata is joined by Sharq Arabic Music Ensemble.
