Recently formed early music ensemble Alkemie specializes in Medieval music and dance for voices and instruments.  Their program will include materials from 12th night celebrations, and takes its inspiration from the celebrations of Twelfth Night and Epiphany, celebrations that have officially marked the end of the Christmas season since the sixth-century Council of Tours. The highly eclectic music on the program ranges from early English carols still sung today, to little known Czech monastery works from the Codex Spécialník collection of the medieval and early Renaissance periods; fourteenth century Spanish Llibre vermel, sacred works written for one, two, and three voices, with texts in Latin, Occitan, and Catalan; and fifteenth and sixteenth Spanish villancios  with dance-like rhythms, rhyming texts, and closed musical structures..
The performers are Tracy Cowart, mezzo-soprano and harp, Elena Mullins, soprano & percussion, Sian Ricketts, soprano & recorders, David McCormick, vielle, and Niccolo Seligmann, vielle & percussion.
