A Medieval Christmas Concert with The Boston Camerata
UVM Lane Series continues their tradition of bringing beautiful music to the audience in celebration of the holidays! The Boston Camerata has conceived a medieval Christmas program, Puer Natus Est, which offers a glimpse of Christmas spirituality from Medieval France, Italy, England, and Provence. The selection includes music of the church and songs of private devotion focused around the joyous theme of the Nativity, sung in Latin, Old French, Old Provençal, and Saxon and interlaced with Medieval English texts. The Milwaukee Magazine says of this program, “A power beyond words, elevating your heart with the music.” Currently celebrating its 64th anniversary, The Boston Camerata ranks among the world’s oldest and most eminent early music ensembles. The group has been under the direction of French-born singer and scholar Anne Azéma since 2008. Along with its commitment to maintaining and renewing Camerata “classics,” Anne and the Camerata originate many new and distinguished productions of important early repertoires spanning eight centuries of music history.
