FLORENCE: Christmas Music of the Trecento

In 14th-century Florence, lay religious fraternities began incorporating vernacular ceremonial songs known as laude into their worship. This popular form entered the homes of the city’s courtiers, learned clerics, and middle-class urbanites. Hear us perform these stirring laude along with cheerful dances and polyphonic works in joyous celebration of the season. With multi-instrumentalist Christa Patton, and period strings and winds.
