Mignarda, American lute song duo Ron Andrico, lute, and Donna Stewart, mezzo-soprano, join the Sunday Parlor Concert Series at the Loring Greenough House, on Sunday, November 17, 2013, at 3:00 p.m., at the historic Loring-Greenough House, 12 South Street, Jamaica Plain MA. Mignarda's concert program offers a snapshot of their first ten years as a duo with music excerpted from their award-winning recording of 17th century French music, Divine Amarillis (2005), a sampling from their ninth and latest CD, John Dowland: A Pilgrimes Solace (April 2013), and a preview of current projects including music for voice and lute composed in the 21st century.
America's premiere professional lute song duo, Mignarda specializes in thoughtful programming that illuminates the vibrant mingling of renaissance music and poetry. Noted for awakening modern audiences to an appreciation for historical music, their work encompasses concertizing, teaching and recording, with 9 critically-acclaimed CDs. Mignarda's publications include a series of 12 music editions, many scholarly articles, reviews and the internationally-popular blog, Unquiet Thoughts. The couple met in a schola providing liturgical music for the Latin Tridentine Mass, and they continue their dedication to historical sacred and secular music. Based in forested upstate NY, Mignarda is currently celebrating their 10th year as a duo. Together, the duo specialize in performing music that resides in the grey zone between folk and art music, with interpretations that follow the renaissance ideal of 'moving the passions' of the listener.
