Details: The Church of St. Andrew in Marblehead will present a concert entitled “Cries and Ballads of London” The concert will be in the church, with limited attendance, and will also be streamed live online. It is made possible in part by the 2020-2021 Gian Lyman Silbiger Grant of the Viola da Gamba Society of New England. This award fosters the performance of music for viols and voices around New England and encourages further exploration of the viol and its music.

The program, under the direction of St. Andrew’s Music Director Mary Jodice, will feature the eight-voice chamber choir Jubilate, in residence at St. Andrews, as well as the El Dorado Viol Consort. The groups will perform secular early music, centering on “The Cries of London” by Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625), which reflects cries of street vendors selling their wares.

“When I have traveled to London, I have always wondered what Old London looked like,” says Jodice. I have long had this work in mind as an anchor for the concert.” Jodice points out that Jubilate will also sing sprightly vocal music about the springtime, including songs by Morley, Marenzio and Byrd.

Members of the El Dorado Viol Consort are Carol Lewis, Karen Burciaga, Hannah Davidson, Mai-Lan Broekman, and Alice Mroszczyk. They will play fantasias by Ravenscroft, Coperario and Woodcock, and a pavan by Tomkins.
