In Stile Moderno presents "Dilettare e muovere:  Virtuoso Performances of the Sixteenth Century." The most brilliant performers of the Renaissance were renowned for their effortless and virtuosic ornamentation, and their ability to improvise new works on existing themes. The music they created, based on vocal polyphony, popular tunes, and dance music, remains a great unwritten repertoire, ripe for rediscovery. We continue this practice with our own adaptations of sixteenth-century music, for cornetto, voice, and harpsichord—using old methods to create something new…

We welcome Seven Times Salt and In Stile Moderno, together in concert. The program explores the many guises of the ground bass from “Greensleeves” to “La Follia” and beyond. As the Renaissance era gave way to the early Baroque, music from English consorts and Italian dances to Spanish divisions and broadside ballads all relied on grounds—repeating bass lines—as a common currency in a time of dramatic musical change. You’ll hear favorite pieces from this beloved genre, ranging from traditional grounds…

In Stile Moderno presents "Faithful and Pious Heart: Devotional Music in Seventeenth-Century Italy. Bringing together the lightness of secular song with the gravity of religious themes, canzonette spirituali emerged in seventeenth-century Italy as a form of sacred vocal music intended not for the church, but for private devotion. With texts in the vernacular Italian, rather than Latin, these songs were often inspired by, or even parodied, the popular songs of the day—but together with the catchy bass lines and hummable…
