Hello Groupmusers --

Once again, I've found musicians who have promised to put together a collection of Sephardic music for your. We are lucky to have Howard Bass and Barbara Hollinshead who will play Spanish Renaissance songs (canciones) and solos for lute as well as Sephardic songs.

You can visit their YouTube channel at the following URL:

I look forward to seeing you all at this event.




Our program will feature 16th c. Spanish Renaissance canciones and solos for vihuela (played on the lute), when such repertoire was commonly heard in the royal courts of Spain, then at the height of its colonial power. Complementing this music, we will perform traditional songs of the Sephardim, Spanish Jews exiled from Spain in 1492. In exile, the Sephardim continued to speak Spanish (this language is now known as Ladino or Judeo-Espanyol), incorporating some words and phrases from the areas where they settled (the Balkans, Turkey, North Africa) and Hebrew. The songs do not date back to medieval Spain, but many evoke a sense of antiquity, and typically deal with timeless topics of love, loss, and journeys through life.
