Women in Song: "I Saw My Lady Weep" and "The Little Ghost"

  • Holyrood Church 715 W 179th St New York, NY, 10033 United States (map)

Project 4

Cantanti's first recital project features two talented women exploring the identify and experience of women in song.

Veronica Gonzalez, soprano, and Chris Baum, lute and vihuela, present I Saw My Lady Weep:

"Being our first venture together, Chris and I want to delve into different languages, composers, and poetry that inspire us. Early music lends itself to the subject matter of this poetry, bare and exposed." - Veronica Gonzalez

Noelle McMurtry, soprano, and Joseph Yungen, piano, present The Little Ghost:

"I conceived this program as a means of ...  highlighting and examining women’s viewpoints in song, be it through the voice of the composer, the poet, or the protagonist of the song itself. I hope to create a mosaic of women’s musical contributions and opinions, which cross time period and musical style, from the early Baroque to the 20th Century." - Noelle McMurtry
