“Between the fourteenth and the seventeenth centuries, English composers produced some amazing music,” says Eugene Enrico, OU Reaugh Professor of Musicology and conductor of the concert.

The University of Oklahoma School of Music presents EARLY MUSIC OF ENGLAND, as part of the Sutton Concert Series at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 25 in the Grayce B. Kerr Gothic Hall of the Catlett Music Center in Norman. 

 “Our concert begins with a delightful medieval song, celebrating Spring, and sung as a round. Next, a sensuous motet by John Dunstable ushers in the new sound of the early Renaissance. We also have a lusty set from the Court of Henry VIII, followed by a suite of lute and dance songs of the Elizabethan era. The finale of the concert is Purcell’s Come Ye Sons of Art, a cantata written for the birthday of Queen Mary,” noted Enrico. Soloists include Skye Singleton, Jenna Dennert, Megan Wagner and Caitlin Gray, sopranos; Will George and Danur Kvilhaug, countertenors; Jonathan Gillis and Joel Garber, tenors; and Andrew Wannigman and Matt McCarter, basses.  A chamber orchestra led by violinists Yajing Zhang and Tristan Selke will accompany the singers. Also featured will be Andrew Schaeffer, harpsichord; Larry Hammett and Danur Kvilhaug, lutes; and Lauren Hughes, Elizabeth Cullen, Roger Rideout and Emily Hiltner playing recorders; with Adam Hall playing both bass recorder and bass gamba (viol).
