‘Christmas in the New World,’ performed by the renowned New England ensemble Musicians of the Old Post Road at the Gloucester Meetinghouse December 16, 7:30pm.
PERFORMERS: Musicians of the Old Post Road is one of the Boston area’s best-loved chamber ensembles specializing in the period instrument performance of dynamic and diverse music from the Baroque to early Romantic eras. Its repertoire includes compelling “rediscovered” works that have been lost to audiences for centuries. Their theme this year is Musical Migrations. ‘Christmas in the New World’ features classical holiday music with a distinctive Latin American flair.
Founded by Artistic Directors Suzanne Stumpf (flute) and Daniel Ryan (cello), the ensemble takes its name from its acclaimed concert series, originally entitled Old Post Road Historic Concerts, begun in 1989. They are joined by Sarah Darling (violin & viola), Marcia Cassidy (viola) and Michael Bahmann, (harpsichord). The venues trace the route of the old Boston Post Road, the first thoroughfare connecting Boston and New York City beginning in the 1670s.
WHAT’S SPECIAL? This is a rare opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with a unique program abounding with festive music exported to 18th-century Central and South America! Selections include lively Spanish villancicos, ornate Italian cantatas, and rhythmically-playful works with indigenous influences. Castellanos, Durán, Jerusalem, Pacheco, and Torres are among the featured composers.
With special guests Jessica Petrus, soprano, and Catherine Hedberg, mezzo-soprano, and special guest Eloy Cruz (Mexico), Baroque guitar
