Riverview Consort: “Oh, Let Us Howl”

October 27 @ 3:00 pm

Preservation New Jersey welcomes the Riverview Consort back to the 1867 Sanctuary for a special program befitting late October!

“As the days grow shorter and the weather takes a turn, we hope you’ll join us for our next program, Oh, Let Us Howl. Throughout history, humans have found ways to deal with the aspects of life that cause fear. In this program, we’ll explore music that allowed people to express their fear, cry together, and even laugh at the things that would otherwise be impossible to face. Works by John Dowland, Thomas Campion, Henry Purcell, Robert Johnson, and others, along with old English folk tunes and dance music, will tell stories of ghosts, witches, pirates, gypsies, murder, and death. Let us face our fears and howl together!”

The Riverview Consort includes:
Abbi Chapman, soprano
John Lacombe, lute, theorbo, etc.
Bill Thatcher, lute, renaissance guitar, etc.
John Burkhalter, recorder
Peter Gregory, percussion

Riverview Early Music is based in Bucks County, PA and strives to present enjoyable performances of Early Music from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Baroque periods with special attention to the various plucked string instruments that evolved throughout those periods, like lutes, theorbo, cittern, baroque guitar, and renaissance guitar.  Depending on the repertory and venue, Riverview Early Music may appear as a lute and song duo consisting of John Orluk Lacombe and Abigail Chapman or as a mixed consort with additional plucked strings, voices, recorders, percussion, and other instruments.
