Houston Early Music’s holiday offering, In Dulci Jubilo, features a return visit by New York’s Aulos Ensemble with soprano Julianne Baird at 7:30 pm, Tuesday, December 11, 2007 at Christ Church Cathedral, 1117 Texas Avenue. Ms. Baird and the ensemble (baroque violin, cello, harpsichord, baroque flute and oboe) will perform vocal and instrumental works from the 16th to 18th centuries. In addition to traditional carols, the program includes arias by J.S. Bach, French noëls and a concerto by Vivaldi.
Julianne Baird has been hailed as “one of the most endearing of early music singers” (Pittsburgh Tribune ). She maintains a busy concert schedule of solo recitals and performances of baroque opera and oratorio. With over 100 recordings to her credit on Decca, Deutsche Gramophone, Newport Classics and Dorian, Ms. Baird is considered one of America’s most recorded women.
Formed in 1973 by five Juilliard graduates, Aulos Ensemble was one of the first American “original instrument” ensembles. Its accomplishments over the past four decades have given it preeminence in the early music movement. The New York Times has described the playing of the ensemble “authentic Baroque performance at its best.”
Tickets are $30 for general admission, $25 for seniors, $10 for students, under 15 free. Tickets may be purchased at the door or by calling 713-432-1744.
