About the event

From Court to Country will explore threads of connection between courtly and pastoral music in France, Italy, and England from the late Medieval to the early Baroque. Ranging from shepherdly love songs to sorrowful lamentations, this program highlights a growing complexity of polyphony, colorful text expression, and harmonic depth in music from the 13th through the 17th centuries.

Partimenti takes its name from the musical building-blocks that were used to train Baroque composers to improvise and invent. Core vocalists Adrienne Lotto, Rhianna Cockrell, Corey Shotwell, and Christopher Talbot take this spirit of improvisation and invention to all the music they perform to create engaging, daring performances of music from the Medieval through the Baroque eras.
