June 15, 12noon, Old West Church – part of the Boston Early Music Festival
Convivium’s program explores the history of music-making in Venice from the time of Willaert’s reforms to the last gasps of the stile antico.
Great singing...interesting, challenging programs, excellent scholarly notes.
I really like the effort put into the concert notes, and the comments between the pieces. Thank you.
The composers you have selected are fantastic. Thank you for bringing this music out for live performance! It makes me so happy that I moved to the Boston area.
I'm just so impressed with what you all accomplish as a group, both in volume and in quality. Thank you for sharing your gifts and hard work!
Beautiful singing...well prepared...wonderful program!
Lovely concert! I appreciate what I learn from the program notes and from the interesting arrangement of the program.
... the chorus filled the small church with rich, vital sound...Mr. Barrett also evidently has a knack for programming.
Melodies rang clear. Full awareness of harmonies, one by one, and the chorus’s unyielding focus constantly caused this listener to admire such extraordinary accomplishment...I was happy to discover this committed ensemble.
Really fine music, not often heard. A real treat!
...radiant and full sound...the group, at all times, projected complete interpretive assurance and a palpable sense of dedication to this music...
