Thursday, June 22 – Thursday, June 29, 2017 Early Music Week
World Fellowship Center writes, “‘Tis Nature’s Voice! Natural imagery informed medieval song lyrics, musicians imitated and dance movements were insprired by birds and animals sounds and gestures. In the Renaissance, wind and water dynamics gained musical counterparts, and soon madrigals turned landscapes into song. Group classes tailored to participant abilities, from advanced beginners to advanced, including classes for viol, recorder, voice, mixed ensembles and historical dance. For more info see earlymusicweek.org.”

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 Early Music Week: The Glory of the Organ
The first pipe organs sounded forth in Roman amphitheaters. Their glorious progeny are still very much with us. This largest and most complex of all instruments continues to charm and astound us, as does its vast, rich repertoire. We’ll start with Renaissance appetizers, dine heartily in the Baroque, sample light Classical-era fare, and conclude our extraordinary sonic banquet with the full roar (but also the heartfelt, touching side) of the Romantic. We will hear exquisitely recorded examples on a very fine audio system. Q&A. Music & instrument list hand-out. CDRs with all of the music.

Christopher Greenleaf is an independent recording engineer, translator, writer, and concert presenter living in Avondale, RI.
