    CAPPELLA CLAUSURA opens Women's History Month with a unique program of selections from the "Ghirlanda di Madrigali", a set of eighteen madrigals composed by Renaissance teenaged prodigy Vittoria Aleotti.  Aleotti's father recognized her talent when she was a toddler, provided her expert training, and gave her a group of poems to set when she was just 14. The results are these beautifully crafted, delicious love songs, as fresh today as they were in their own time. Together with these selections, we will perform madrigals by two famous contemporaries of Aleotti: the young John Dowland, court lutenist to James I, and the young Carlo Gesualdo, Renaissance Italy's original very bad boy.  


    Join us after the concert to celebrate the release of Cappella Clausura's first studio recording, of the complete Aleotti madrigals! CDs will be available for sale.
