Uconn Collegium Musicum: Shakespeare's Songbook

Friday, September 23, 2016
8:00pm – 9:00pm

Storrs Campus
Benton Museum

Performed by the UConn Collegium Musicum Eric Rice, Director

Shakespeare's plays are replete with music. It plays substantial allegorical and symbolic roles in the plays, was performed both within the drama and as incidental music, and is mentioned by numerous characters. Our concert explores music that was either discussed or performed within the plays, but we also perform several motets and anthems from Shakespeare’s time. The conclusion of the concert will be a performance of Thomas Tallis’s renowned 40-part Spem in alium, performed during Shakespeare’s lifetime at the 1610 investiture of the Henry Frederick as Prince of Wales.
