Joy, Pleasure, and Sweet Nourishment: A Concert of Early Music
Concerts:
  • Friday, January 11, 2019 at 7:30 pm @ Bread & Butter Farm, 200 Leduc Farm Rd., Shelburne, VT
  • Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 7:30 pm @ Christ Episcopal Church, 64 State St., Montpelier, VT
  • Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 4 pm @ Warren United Church, 339 Main St., Warren, VT
(Marshfield, VT, December 11, 2018) – Scrag Mountain Music rings in the New Year with a concert of heartwarming early music. “Joy, Pleasure, and Sweet Nourishment: A Concert of Early Music” welcomes celebrated interpreters of early music for a performance of works by Jean-Baptiste Barrière, John Dowland, John Eccles, George Frideric Handel, Guillaume de Machaut, Henry Purcell, and a piece that invokes the spirit of early music by the young New York City-based Canadian composer Matthew Ricketts. Concerts are on Friday, January 11, 2019 at 7:30 pm (Bread & Butter Farm, 200 Leduc Farm Rd., Shelburne, VT), Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 7:30 pm (Christ Episcopal Church, 64 State St., Montpelier, VT), and Sunday, January 13 at 4 pm (Warren United Church, 339 Main St., Warren, VT).
Joining Scrag Mountain Music’s co-Artistic Directors Mary Bonhag (soprano) and Evan Premo (double bass and composer), who will also perform on the viola da gamba (the precursor to the modern-day cello), are guest artists Paul Holmes Morton on theorbo, lute, and baroque guitar, Priscilla Herreid on baroque oboe and recorders, and Michael Unterman on the cello.
Scrag Mountain Music is pleased to be able to bring back a program of early music following two popular early music concerts presented in previous seasons. Scrag Mountain Music co-Artistic Director and soprano Mary Bonhag says, “Music of the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods has the ability to truly transport us back in time to when rules of harmony and rhythm were still being adapted and when life moved at a different pace. During these times (and really up until recent eras), music was an integral part of daily life – created and played for both practical and artful purposes. “Joy, Pleasure, and Sweet Nourishment” explores Medieval, Renaissance, and a bit of Baroque music from France and England. This is music of the courts – sounds to entertain, delight, and fuel the souls and senses of royalty and nobility. I so enjoy singing early music and love sharing this repertoire, new sounds (and new instruments!) with our audiences.”
“Joy, Pleasure, and Sweet Nourishment: A Concert of Early Music” will present three concerts between January 11-13, 2019. All concerts are “Come as you are. Pay what you can.” with at-will donations collected at intermission. Securing your seats in advance at www.scragmountainmusic.org is encouraged.
