The Boston Camerata, America’s preeminent early music ensemble, brings two celebratory programs to Boston this holiday season: Puer Natus Est: A Medieval Christmas and the premiere of a new program, Gloria! An Italian Christmas. The performances bring intimacy and warmth to songs from France, Italy, and England with joyful songs devoted to the Nativity and from the golden age of Venice.
Puer Natus Est is an intimate candlelit glimpse of Christmas spirituality from Medieval France, Italy, England, and Provence. Music of the church and songs of private devotion around the joyous theme of the Nativity are performed by women’s voices, medieval harp, vielle, and winds. Included are songs to the Virgin Mary, hymns, processionals from Saint Martial of Limoges, and miracle ballads sung in Latin, Old French, Old Provençal, and Saxon, interlaced with Medieval English texts.
