Portes du Ciel - Gates of Paradise

Apr 13 2014 - 4:00pm

Sung by the Camerata's stellar female trio, accompanied by vielles and harp, this concert brings forth an abundant harvest of song in French, both secular and sacred from the regions of Champagne, Picardy, and Lorraine. The subject of  "Gates of Paradise” is the magnificent repertoire, composed in both the courtly and popularizing manners, in praise of the Virgin Mary. Noble songs in the refined trouvère style, narrations in word and song, and dance music with sacred texts, are all included in this production. Part II of the Reims Project.
