The Toronto Consort | Time Stands Still
November 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on November 4, 2023 at 8:00 pm
‘Exquisite’ in 1591, enchanting today.
Travel back to the vibrant English Renaissance and delight in the shimmering and silvery sounds of plucked strings, bowed strings and transverse flute, as heard at private entertainments of the late sixteenth century. Known as the “broken” consort because its members were drawn from diverse instrumental families, this exquisite sonic mixture enchanted its audiences in the time of Elizabeth I, but is rarely experienced today.
The program offers a colourful array of consort “lessons” and masterpieces by Richard Allison, Thomas Campion, Thomas Morley, John Johnson and others, along with duets and trios for other mixtures of instruments and voices.
Joining us in this intimate Renaissance musical tapestry is bass and spoken-word artist Martin Gomes, whose poetry will reflect upon the era’s themes beyond the music.
