    The Newberry Consort

    Presented by at First Church in Cambridge, Congregational

    February 6, 2015


    The Newberry Consort

    The Newberry Consort has delighted audiences with provocative and ravishingly beautiful programs for nearly three decades. The ensemble, led by co-directors David Douglass and Ellen Hargis, returns to BEMF in a spellbinding multimedia performance of selections from the Cantigas de Santa Maria with singers from Boston’s own Exsultemus. The Cantigas, a gorgeous collection of medieval Spanish songs in praise of the Virgin Mary that are replete with tales of saints, sinners, and miracles, come alive in a presentation incorporating projected images of the lavish illustrations from the original 13th-century manuscripts commissioned by King Alfonso X of Castile.
