Sunday Afternoon Concerts at the ‘Greenough House
Meravelha brings Medieval Music
to Loring-Greenough House,
on November 4, 2012
Meravelha, the medieval music group, presents it’s first full-length concert, “Daydreams and Desires,” featuring repertoire pulled from some of the most delightful music of Medieval France, with haunting melodic lines and eloquent lyrics from some of the best poets and storytellers of the era, at the Loring-Greenough House, 12 South St, Jamaica Plain MA, as part of the Sunday Afternoon at the ‘Greenough House parlor concert series, on Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 3:00 p.m.
Meravelha was formed in 2012 for the purpose of bringing rarely-performed medieval music to a wider audience through live performance. The name Meravelha translates as “marvel” or “wonder” and was taken from the song “Non es meravelha s’eu chan,” by Bernard de Ventadorn, a 12th century troubadour. Members of the group are Teri Kowiak, voice, Jaya Lakshminarayanan, voice and harp, Josh Schreiber Shalem, vielle, Catherine Stein, voice, Tim Whipple, voice.
