While Shakespeare was defining English poetry and drama, Dowland was doing the same for English song. After Dowland, the influence of the Italians led to the magnificent achievements of Henry Purcell, the greatest English composer of all time. The richness of music from 17th century Britain also set the tone for our own Appalachian tradition.
Tekla Cunningham, baroque violin and baroque harpist Maxine Eilander will join GRAMMY-winning lutenist Stephen Stubbs, soprano Danielle Reutter-Harrah and viola da gambist Tess Roberts in a survey of the golden age of English song – where Time may indeed Stand Still.
Seattle-based Pacific MusicWorks is a musical production company focused primarily, but not exclusively, on the presentation of vocal chamber music and operatic works of the 17th and 18th centuries. In recent years they have also committed themselves to commissioning new works written for period instruments as a means of bridging the stories of the past with those of today.
