Musick’s Recreation

May 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Historic houses help us imagine what home life for some people in colonial New England might have looked like, but what might it have sounded like? Find out at this performance of historical music ensemble Lyracle’s program, Musick’s Recreation. In this program, Lyracle focuses on a few documented viol players in colonial New England as well as viol players who were left out of historical records. Lyracle connects what can be inferred about their varied musical experiences to English repertoire that was likely present in 17th and early 18th century New England. Experience the music of beloved composers like Henry Purcell and his lesser-known contemporaries recontextualized, and help celebrate all kinds of local historic music-making: the silly, the serious and everything in between.
