Soprano/musicologist Samantha Arten follows her recent Advent concert of lute and continuo songs with a new program of vocal music for the Lenten season. The concert includes lutes songs by Thomas Campion and John Dowland as well continuo songs by Henry Purcell and Pelham Humfrey. Italian works on the program include evocative early baroque monody by Giorlamo Frescobaldi, a famous lament by Claudio Monteverdi and a dramatic (and seldom performed) Stabat Mater by Giovanni Sances. Samantha will be joined for this program by Jeffrey Noonan playing lute and theorbo. Free will offering accepted.
