Riverview Early Music, “Makefield’s Delight”
August 11, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey welcomes Riverview Early Music back to the 1867 Sanctuary with their program of French music for voice and lute, Makefield’s Delight featuring Abigail Chapman, soprano and John Lacombe, lute.
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.
Abigail Chapman is a versatile light lyric soprano who sings music ranging from 12th-century chant to compositions written today. While she performs music from all periods and has sung in a variety of musical styles, she is best known for her work in early music, her performances of 20th and 21st century music, and her creative song recitals. Ms. Chapman holds an MM in Voice from The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College. A current resident of Yardley, PA and a proud native of Damariscotta, Maine, she has also lived and sung in and around New York City, Philadelphia, Denver, and Baltimore, and has performed elsewhere around the United States, as well as in Germany, Japan, and New Zealand.
John Lacombe performs on historical plucked string instruments from the renaissance and baroque eras. Hailing from Buffalo, New York he studied historical musicology at SUNY Buffalo and has studied lute with Pat O’Brien, Dan Swenberg, and Richard Stone. He currently lives in Washington Crossing, PA and has performed with various period instruments ensembles, collaborated frequently with singers on lute-song repertory, and participated in educational panels and lecture-recitals to discuss musical culture in the renaissance and today. His interests include helping people find a personal connection with music regardless of the era or style, home brewing, and pop-up books.
