In days bygone, domestic entertainment during ones leisurely hours would have included both songs or dances, experienced by either hiring professional singers and players if one had the means, or by gathering friends and family around a set of part books and whiling away the evening at home reading through beloved tunes.
Baroque Music Montana presents 'Ye Old Song and Dance' featuring the Dark Horse Consort, the nation's "go-to" period brass ensemble performing favorite 17th century pieces coupled with with contemporaneous sonatas and canzonas. Repertoire includes heralding canzonas by Gabrieli and Cavalli, rapturous sonatas by Castello, and town band dances by Buonamente and Praetorius. Performers include sackbuts and cornetto players from the Dark Horse Consort along with Carrie Krause, baroque violin, and John Lenti, lute.
