A Bull, a Byrd, Peter and Peter’s Son:
Renaissance Keyboard Music from England and the Low Countries
At the turn of the 17th century, innovative musical ideas exchanged between composers from England, Italy and the Low Countries of northern Europe resulted in an explosion of music intended for a variety of keyboard instruments, including virginals, clavichords, harpsichords and pipe organs. This program will present a sampling of free compositions and works based on songs and dances of the period played on a small chamber organ (Gerret Klop, Netherlands 1996) which is ideally suited for this style of music.
On Wednesdays St. Luke offers a weekly sung Compline service online at 8:30 p.m. This 20-25 minute service includes a musical reflection that varies weekly, and is sung by a (masked, distanced) quartet. A pdf of the service is available on the stlukeithaca.org main page if you wish to participate vocally or follow along, or you may simply listen.
We welcome you any Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. We will celebrate Epiphany on January 6 and continue for the foreseeable future.
