ODES: In Honor of St. Cecilia

ODES: In Honor of St. Cecilia

In late 17th-century England, St. Cecilia’s Day, November 22nd, was an occasion for musical celebration and competitions for new works honoring the patron saint of music. In 2014, TENET celebrates the birthday of St. Cecilia with a festive new program of works by the great Henry Purcell (1659-95). This year we offer selections from Purcell’s numerous, but seldom performed “symphony songs” or secular cantatas, as well as dances and airs from his music for the theatre and other chamber music.

The Grand Tour 2015 - Metropolitan Museum of Art


Presented by the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Hailed by The New York Times as “perhaps the most perfect realization yet of the mission of Met Museum Presents,” The Grand Tour, which sold out both performances last season, returns with music from the British Isles for solo harp in the Met’s English galleries; Dutch songs and dances played on the recorders, shawms, bagpipes, and lute seen in the paintings of Bruegel, Vermeer, and Rembrandt; music from 16th-century Spain in the El Greco gallery; and, honoring the Met’s 17th-century Italian galleries, music composed for Concerto delle donne, the group of professional female singers who revolutionized the role of women in music during the late Renaissance under Alfonso II, Duke of Ferrara.
