Kleine Musik includes:  Johanna Rose, soprano | Karol Steadman, soprano | Jason Priset, theorbo | Tricia van Oers, recorder | Deborah Booth, recorder | Patricia Ann Neely, viol

Kleine Musik is a project interweaving nine pieces from the Kleine Geistliche Konzerte, a vocal and instrumental collection by the 17th-century German master, Heinrich Schütz, with new settings of the same texts by the wonderful British contemporary composer, Ivan Moody. The project was brought to our attention by Ivan himself, who asked if we would like to give the U.S. premiere of the program. With his blessing, we have reworked the material and shaped the program to fit our ensemble of two sopranos, two recorders/baroque flute, viola da gamba, and theorbo.

We have three upcoming performances, on February 27th, May 5th, and May 20th. We are seeking support to pay our ensemble members appropriate artist fees, as well as to pay a professional recording engineer to record all three performances. We will then produce a compilation live CD, which is offered as a reward in our campaign.

Program:
Heinrich Schütz : Kleine geistliche Konzerte

Ivan Moody : Kleine geistliche Konzerte (U. S. Premiere)
