Mysterious Indigo.

Unpredictable Ochre. The Austin premiere with period chamber ensemble of Georg Philipp Telemann’s comic chamber opera Pimpinone, embellished with some of his most ravishing and progressive chamber music. TEMP regular Meredith Ruduski sings the role of Vespetta and New York’s Peter Walker portrays the put-upon title character in this staged performance, set in current times. Someone has a lot of ’splaining to do!

Eton Choirbook
The Cry of Many Voices:
An Illuminated Renaissance

Smooth Blue. In these compositions for 5-12 a cappella parts, shimmering and transparent textures alternate with lusciously dense ones in music from the unique compositions of England’s Eton Choirbook and from the “Earthquake Mass” (Missa ‘Et ecce terrae motus’) by Antoine Brumel. The reverberant voices of more than 20 singers will surround you and captivate your imaginations.

Please see the The Cry of Many Voices page for more detailed program information and our related CD: Sacred: Music of the Divine from Medieval to Baroque .
