Men, Maids, and Mischief September 6, 2012

Musica Nuova undresses buttoned-up Britain on a semi-staged program of incredibly bawdy songs, catches, and tales from pubs and houses of ill-repute.

Come raise a pint for chestnuts like "My Man John had a Thing that was Long," and "Was ever Maiden so Leericompooped?" A music master instructs his pupil to play his "instrument," a swimming nymph is in for a surprise, and an old man is bested by his virgin bride. Music by Purcell, Weelkes, Eccles, and many dirty anonymous minds.

Brooke Bryant, soprano
Amanda Keil, mezzo-soprano
Nicholas Tamagna, counter-tenor
Peter Becker, baritone
Grant Herreid, tenor and lute
