Compiled with care for a specific individual, they not only included popular songs but also totally unique works.

Les Délices brings the music and images from the recently-discovered Leuven Songbook to vivid life in this multimedia program including gorgeous projected manuscript images and supertitles. Produced in collaboration with Chicago’s renowned Newberry Consort, our ensemble of singers, medieval fiddles, harp, lute, organetto and recorders will perform works by Ockeghem, Busnois, and more.

Performers include: Ellen Hargis (soprano), David Douglass (vielle & rebec), Allison Monroe (vielle & rebec), Jason McStoots (tenor), Daniel Fridley (baritone), Charles Weaver (lute), Charles Metz (organetto), and Debra Nagy (harp, voice, medieval winds). Projections designed by Shawn Keener.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10″][vc_empty_space height=”10″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1547228854180{padding-top: 2px !important;padding-right: 2px !important;padding-bottom: 2px !important;padding-left: 2px !important;background-color: #00a0b3 !important;border-radius: 2px !important;}”]Don’t miss the Pre-Concert Talkat 3pm in the Plymouth Church Sanctuary!
