Parthenia Viols, Ryland Angel
with Jonathan Richards ~ actor

Premiered by Parthenia in 2018, Martin Kennedy’s “Tomb Sonnets” sets historic texts by Petrarch (1304–1374), John Keats (1795–1821), and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882) to transcendent music for countertenor and viol consort. Featuring countertenor Ryland Angel and actor Jonathan Richards, Tomb Sonnets will explore enduring themes of death, loss, and burial through works by Kennedy, Giovanni Gabrieli (1557–1612), Jacques Arcadelt (1507–1568), Phillipe Verdelot (ca. 1470–before 1552), and Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583–1643).

Join the artists after the program for Cocktails from the Crypt.
