Musica Celestis et Mortalis: Celestial Harmonies & Earthly Overtones of the 17th Century
In memory of the English philosopher, artist and musician Robert Fludd (1574-1637) and Italy’s poet-hero Alighieri Dante (1265-1321), Musica Celestis et Mortalis celebrates the “music of the spheres;” the Pythagorean belief in a universe ordered upon the musical harmonies produced by the movements of the heavenly bodies forever echoed throughout the earth. Illuminating this connection between heaven and earth, Musica Celestis et Mortalis explores both English and Italian “music of the spheres” from the Early Baroque. With exquisite music for theorbo and voice, Amy and Dominic will perform the celestial sounds of Giovanni Felice Sances, Barbara Strozzi, Henry Purcell, Claudio Monteverdi, Bellerofonte Castaldi…
