About the Program:

The viola da gamba was one of the most popular and versatile instruments from medieval age through the baroque era. For centuries people enjoyed the viol as a social instrument, making music together in their homes. Kings commissioned music for viol consort from their court composers and singers used the viol consort as their backup band. From the Netherlands to England, Germany to France, the viola da gamba was loved for its angelic tone likened to the human voice. In the 20th century the viol reemerged as part of the early music revival. Second City Musick, a viol trio of Chicago’s own early music specialists, has chosen some of their favorite tunes from this vast repertoire, hoping to delight you with the soulful and exuberant music that has charmed music lovers for centuries.
