A Feast for St. James

Saturday, June 15, 2019, 8:00 PM
Saint James Cathedral, Seattle 

It happens that one of the earliest and largest written sources of polyphonic music—music for multiple voices—is wholly dedicated to the Feast of St. James as it was celebrated at his great pilgrimage shrine, the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. The Codex Calixtinus was an international effort, but it has been housed in Santiago since the 12th century. The choir and soloists are pleased to bring this music from the Saint’s cathedral in Spain to his Cathedral in Seattle. We will be welcoming Marian Seibert, Erika Chang, Linda Strandberg, Lisa Pontén, Emily Ostrom, and Marjorie Bunday with Bill McJohn as performing artists on our program.

Online ticket sales for this concert are closed. Passes may be purchased at the door.

Travelers’ Frolic!

Saturday, May 4th, 2019, 5:00 PM
Epiphany Parish, Seattle 

Journey with the Medieval Women’s Choir as we recreate a spring evening shared by medieval travelers. Though travel could be costly and difficult, people often regarded the journeys as adventures, hoping to try new foods, meet new people, refresh their lives, much as we regard modern vacations. Your ticket includes a frolic-filled evening of entertainment and food including hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, entertainment, dinner, dessert, and a champagne toast. The singers of the Medieval Women’s Choir will offer their voices during the evening, and you will be invited to make your gift in support of one of the most loved institutions in Seattle’s Early Music community.

Ticket sales are currently closed.

Hodie!

“Hodie,” or “Today,” is the word that begins any number of songs and texts for Christmas: Today Christ is born! Today the Savior appeared! It was the cue to unleash the greatest celebration of the year. Join us as we unleash our joy in sharing the music with you!

This concert is supported, in part, by a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission.


 

Courtly Love: A User’s Guide

Saturday, March 16th, 2019,  8:00 PM

Medieval love songs contain elements so universal that they could almost constitute a “how-to” guide for romantic relationships at court. In this concert, we will learn to follow instructions.
