Online concertConception and artistic direction: Lucas Harris
With participation from Suzie LeBlanc and Ariadne Lih
This concert presents recently reconstituted pieces by Chiara Margarita Cozzolani (1602-c.1677), an Italian composer and Benedictine singer. She was one of the most prolific nun composers of her time, having published four editions of sacred pieces. The bass part from her first motet book, Scherzi di Sacra Melodia were tragically lost. They have recently been reconstituted by Lucas Harris, a theorbo player, musicologist, and conductor.
The sung parts of these four motets were recorded in the Hospitallers’s old chapel.
