The TEMP Eurotour continues in the Lowlands–what is now the Netherlands, Belgium, and northern France–which developed many of the foremost composers, musicians, and artists of the Renaissance and early Baroque. From Amsterdam to Flanders, we’ll sample the some of the best music from the courts and churches, as well as street songs and dances.

Our journey includes music by composers who were among the most highly regarded in Europe and who worked in major courts and cathedrals of France, Italy, and Germany. Josquin des Prez, Obrecht, and Willaert were but a small portion of the influential Renaissance composers from the Lowlands. Our program spans the musical year, beginning with the new year and proceeding through Spring, Summer, and Fall to some of the beautiful Cantiones Natalitiae (Christmas songs) that were so popular in the Netherlands.

Our group of eighteen singers includes soloists Gitanjali Mathur, Jenifer Thyssen, Meredith Ruduski, Cayla Cardiff, Jeffrey Jones-Ragona, Thann Scoggin, and others.

Special guest, Mary Springfels, leads the viol consort of Stephanie Raby, Jane Leggiero, and John Walters, along with Scott Horton (lutes), Elaine Barber (harp), Susan Richter and Victor Eijkhout (recorders).
