First performed in 1589 for the spectacular Florentine wedding of Ferdinando de Medici to Christine of Lorraine, La Pellegrina is a musical masterpiece of spectacular dimensions. The choir, soloists, and a full orchestra of period instruments (viols, cornetto, sackbuts, and lutes) form a stellar ensemble of over fifty performers gathered from across the country. Lawrence Rosenwald, renowned Wellesley linguist and poet, created and recited an original poetic narrative.

Recorded live performances at St. Martin's Lutheran Church, Austin, TX.
Jay Norwood, Sound Engineer.
