Organist extraordinaire Anne Laver joins us in a collaborative concert inspired by St. Cecilia, patron saint of musicians and especially of organists. Annie will play music by women composers, including Caterina Assandra (c1590–c1618); Sór Maria Clara del Santísimo Sacramento (fl1650–1700); and Fanny Mendelssohn (1805–1847). She’ll also tug on threads of patronage by women passionate about music, including Elizabeth Bacon (c1541–1621), better known as ‘Ladye Nevell’; Queen Christina of Sweden (1626–1689); and Princess Anna Amalia of Prussia (1723–1787). Circa 1600 will provide vocal music in honor of St. Cecilia, and throughout we’ll feature imagery from the rich trove of Cecilian iconography.
