About the Baltimore Consort
The Baltimore Consort, known for their lively renditions of Renaissance tunes, presents a brand new program featuring their core repertory--music of the Elizabethan era--with songs and consort music from the Shakespeare plays. Ethereal soprano Danielle Svonavec performs some of the greatest hits from the Bard's songbook, including "It Was a Lover and his Lass," "Where the Bee Sucks," "Full Fathom Five," and "The Willow Song," and the BC instrumentalists play sparkling arrangements of dances and consort music related to the plays, with their "exquisite consort" of instruments--lute, cittern, viols, and flute.
