Performance Notes

× Pre-show Chat: 1:15pm in Harmac Room

Les Voix humaines consort of Viols have thrilled audiences worldwide with dashing performances of early and contemporary music for three decades with arrangements that give new life to the ideology of recycled music. This performance of Dowland Lachrimae will resonate with the natural acoustics of the Port Theatre, sweeping you away to a time of beauty and sadness and descending tetrachord, an iconic work that defies the 21st century concept of sound bites or tweets! Slow, rich in harmony with time for contemplation, the sonnet that the original song was set to speaks of the pain of love lost. This beautiful collection includes diverse pavans, galliards and allemands, which in our concert program alternate with the Dowland Lachrimae.

Soft-woven, wonderfully fibrous and full of textural interest
