Soprano Emily Noel, tenor Bradley King, historical harpist Paula Fagerberg and viol player Arnie Tanimoto are featured in this exploration of early 17th century music.The music of the brothers William and Henry Lawes, and others, resonated well with the words of “Cavalier” poets such as Thomas Carew and Richard Herrick, producing a wealth of beautiful and dramatic solo and duo songs. The concert title song, “Gather ye Rosebuds while you may,” one of the most famous songs from 17th century England, sets the concert’s flower theme highlighting the wonderful music that flourished in the Jacobean and Carolinian courts.
