Albion at Home and Abroad: English Composers of the 17th Century --Corda Nova Baroque and Jason Rylander, tenor

The baroque ensemble Corda Nova, along with tenor Jason Rylander, presents a program of works by English composers who stayed at home (Purcell, Hume, Lawes) and traveled abroad (Young, Butler).  Lively instrumental selections highlight the popular forms of the day, including the trio sonata, divisions, and tunes from the theater.  

Jason Rylander has been praised by the Washington Post for his “strong, clear tenor” and for performances that “coupled sonorous warmth and emotional depth.” Recent solo highlights include Handel’s Esther and Bach’s cantatas 5 and 182 at the American Bach Soloists Academy and Festival in San Francisco, Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1640 with the TENET/Green Mountain Project in New York and Boston, Bach’s B-Minor Mass with the Washington Bach Consort, the Mozart Requiem and Salieri Requiem with the Bach Sinfonia, Monteverdi’s Vespro della Beata Vergine 1610 with the Orchestra of the 17th Century, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the New Dominion Chorale, Handel’s Messiah with the Choir and Orchestra of the Church of the Ascension and St. Agnes, and works of Bach, Carissimi, and Monteverdi at the Winchester Bach Festival.
