Description

With soprano Ann Monoyios and guest instrumentalists Mary Springfels and Tom Zajac.

Islamic, Jewish, and Christian traditions peacefully co-existed in the 13th-century court of Alfonso the Wise, creating one of the most fascinating episodes in Spanish history. Works from Alfonso’s famous Cantigas de Santa Maria are paired with works from 14th-century French-ruled Cyprus, including sophisticated ballades, dance songs, and avant-garde rondeaux. Rounding out the program are instrumental works for fiddles, citoles, harp, winds, and bagpipes.

Pre-concert Discussion:

Robert Aubry Davis, seen on WETA’s Around Town and heard on XM Radio’s opera and classical vocal music channel, leads a lively pre-concert discussion with the performers on Friday, March 13 at 7pm in the Elizabethean Theatre.
