Mignarda opens the 15th season of “Sunday Afternoon at the ‘Greenough House” Parlor Concerts, October 5, 2014
Mignarda, American lute song duo Ron Andrico, lute, and Donna Stewart, mezzo-soprano, return to the Sunday Parlor Concert Series at the Loring Greenough House, on Sunday, October 5, 2014, at 3:00 p.m., at the historic Loring-Greenough House, 12 South Street, Jamaica Plain MA with “A Pilgrimes Solace”, a program of the music of John Dowland as the centerpiece; this program probes the perfect marriage of poetry and music – with texts both light and dark – from the Golden Age of English lute song. Music by John Dowland, John Danyel, Thomas Campion, Thomas Morley, Robert Jones and others.
America’s premiere professional lute song duo, Mignarda specializes in thoughtful programming illuminating the vibrant mingling of renaissance music and poetry. Noted for awakening modern audiences to an appreciation for historical music, their work encompasses concertizing, teaching and recording, with ten critically-acclaimed CDs. Mignarda’s publications include a series of 12 music editions, scholarly articles, reviews and the internationally-popular blog, Unquiet Thoughts. The couple met in a schola providing liturgical music for the Latin Tridentine Mass, and they continue their dedication to historical sacred and secular music. Based in forested upstate NY, Mignarda is currently celebrating their 10th year as a duo. For further information, visit http://www.mignarda.com. Meet the artists at afternoon tea following the program.
