GEMS Presents MUSIC'S QUILL: BEAUTY SAT BATHING Concert, 12/20

Related: GEMS, Gotham Early Music Scene,

Gotham Early Music Scene (GEMS) presents Music's Quill – Beauty Sat Bathing on Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 1:15pm at Saint Peter's Lutheran Church, 619 Lexington Avenue (at 54th Street), New York, NY.

Music's Quill: Timothy Neill Johnson, tenor; Timothy Burris, lute.

Three settings of Anthony Munday's "Beauty Sat Bathing" by Robert Jones, William Corkine and Francis Pilkington illustrate the range of the English lute song in the 16thand early 17th centuries. While Jones' and Corkine's works sound ahead of their time, Pilkington's, by comparison, sounds like a voice from the past.

Midtown Concerts offers workers in midtown as well as the general public the opportunity to enjoy high-quality performances of music of the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods in a convenient, comfortable, acoustically superb venue. Tickets are not necessary; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Free-will donations are gratefully accepted at the door.

This is part of a weekly series of free 35-minute concerts, every Thursday at 1:15 p.m. Free - No tickets required; seating first-come, first-served. For more information, go to www.gemsny.org or call 212/866-0468
