Oracles, Prophets and Dreams

March 17 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM


The Newberry Consort introduces the mysterious world of sybils, prophets, and oracles through a variety of music from the high Renaissance, including the haunting Sibylline Prophecies, a series of motets by Orlande de Lassus. Voices join with lute, recorders, reeds, and sackbut to perform works that warn, whisper, and herald the future. Paired with projections by musicologist and graphic artist Shawn Keener, this concert invites audiences to enter the world of dreams. Get swept up in Jonah’s story from the belly of the whale, Jacob’s evocative night visions, the prayers of Judith the prophet, and Jeremiah’s visions, all set to evocative music by Senfl, Rogier, Monte, Agricola, and Tallis. While including prophetic texts familiar to many, this program predominantly centers on the words of female prophets. This small-scale vocal and instrumental concert is the Consort’s most intimate of the season.
