The series will conclude with the Collection debut of the Tapestry Ensemble on April 13. This Boston-based vocal and instrumental ensemble combines medieval repertory and contemporary compositions in bold, conceptual programming. Their four recordings with Telarc International have been best-sellers and their two discs on the German MDG label have each received awards.

Comprised of Cristi Catt, soprano; Laurie Monahan, mezzo-soprano; Daniela Tosic, mezzo-soprano; Diana Brewer, soprano, vielle and sackbut; Christa Patton, vielle and medieval harp; and Takaaki Masuko, percussion, the group will perform a concert entitled “Song of Songs: Come into my Garden.” The program weaves together ancient Hebrew, medieval Latin, Arabic, and modern English settings. This one-of-a-kind concert offers interpretations, both sensual and spiritual, of a 3,000-year-old text, which has been variously classified as an erotic love song, and as Judaeo-Christian allegory.
