Hailed as “one of the brightest lights in New York’s early-music scene,” by the New Yorker, Parthenia Viol Consort bring their artistry to Nyack in a transcendent program of music and poetry with Ryland Angel, countertenor. Music spanning the centuries from the 1400s to the present day is interspersed with dramatic readings by actor Jonathan Richards in a captivating performance animating the ancient and modern. Music by composers Giovanni Gabrieli, Girolamo Frescobaldi, Martin Kennedy and others is set to poetry by John Keats, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Petrarch and Robert Burns, creating a spellbinding evening of music in a historic church illuminated by candlelight.
