Our season concludes with a lively program of music that draws inspiration from ages past. Edward Gregson's works evoke the image of an early Renaissance court, viewed through a modern lens. His Sword and the Crown was written to accompany productions by the Royal Shakespeare Company depicting the reign of Henry IV - one of the most turbulent periods of the British monarchy. Michael Gandolfi’s elegant and invigorating Flourishes and Meditations on a Renaissance Theme present seven variations on the Renaissance tune simply titled “Spagnoletta”.  In the hauntingly beautiful Sketches on a Tudor Psalm, Fisher Tull re-imagines Thomas Tallis's setting of the second psalm of the Episcopal Hymnal. Our season concludes full circle with a performance of Star Wars title theme which, since its premiere in 1977, has famously invited us to consider that which occurred "A Long Time Ago".
