    The Cloistered Muse: Nun Composers and Musicians in 17th Century Northern Italy

Recent research into the musical programs of Renaissance and early Baroque Italian convents, have yielded musical compositions stunning in both their numbers and quality. These sacred works by women composers have only recently been brought to light, and show a quality and sophistication equal to those of contemporary male composers. Alongside these choral works, Collegium instrumentalists will perform several early Italian sonatas and dances.
