Music and Poetry of the Jews in Renaissance Italy.”

4:00 pm, Sun., May 4, 2008
First Unitarian Universalist Church 5200 Fannin

In its first visit to Houston, this noted Italian ensemble presents a reconstruction of the soundscape that would have accompanied a typical Northern Jewish Italian family through the liturgical year and the life cycle. It combines sung poetry in Giudeo-Italian, Yiddish and Hebrew, traditional liturgical and paraliturgical music, and the lively songs and dances that would have been used to celebrate life’s transitions.
