Thrill to two epic tales of reunification in this all-French program.

Star-crossed lovers are reunited in the land of immortals in Clerambault’s cantata Leandre et Hero. Clerambault’s Sonata La Felicité and an overture by Charpentier complete this season opener. With soprano Teresa Wakim.
December 18: Sounding Joy

Our beloved program that became a critically-acclaimed CD recording! Transport yourself to a world of wild wonders with Vivaldi’s Goldfinch concerto, Biber’s colorful Sonata Representativa, Werner’s stormy November suite, and the ensemble’s reconstruction of J. F. Lampe’s playful Cuckoo Concerto.
April 30: Taking Inspiration
Harvard-Epworth Church, Cambridge and Online
With “imitation being the highest form of flattery,” this program explores works by Handel that were influenced by many composers he admired, including concertos and sonatas by Handel, Telemann, and Scarlatti, together with a fugue by Corelli that inspired part of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.

Episode 4: Sites and Sounds of Early Sudbury
Musicians of the Old Post Road teams up with the Sudbury Historical Society to highlight some of history-rich Sudbury's most fascinating historical sites: the Rice Tavern site, Loring Parsonage, Hearse House, Town Pound, and Revolutionary War Cemetery, Hosmer House, and the pub room of the Wayside Inn. Historical Society members offer brief talks at each location, providing a richer understanding of each site's history and key personages in Sudbury's past. The ensemble performs rediscovered 18th-century Massachusetts selections at each site, bringing this history to life!
