Severall Friends in The Shadow of Night

Musical Magic and Mysticism for All Hallow's Eve

At the turn of the 17th Century, English people of every station were known to have practiced the occult arts, from alchemy and the Cabala to homespun spells and witchcraft. Join Severall Friends as they enchant with excerpts from contemporary diaries, diatribes, drama, poetry, and music, touching on magic of all sorts.

Houston Early Music presents Severall Friends - Early music in the high desert. A consortium of musicians who gather to play a broad spectrum of early music from Machaut to Rameau and based in Santa Fe, Severall Friends' mission is to bring compelling performances to the Southwest.

The artists appearing in this performance are:  

Ryland Angel, tenor 

Shira Kammen, violin  

Jonathan Richards, narrator  

Mark Rimple, lute and viol  

Mary Springfels, viols
