Vertical Player Repertory Presents

Anima Mundi: The Cosmos Shimmers

Music by Monteverdi, Couperin, Purcell, Hidalgo, Literes

May 1, 8pm


Vertical Player Repertory welcomes the period instrument ensemble Anima to miniatures behind the door 2019 Salon Series for Anima Mundi: The Cosmos Shimmers, a metaphysical meditation in music. From the harmonic proportions of the Soul of the World, to the cosmic disorder caused by love and the senses, Anima reflects on the harmonies of body and soul, both universal and all-too-human. With 17th-century music from England, France, Spain, and Italy, and readings paraphrased from Plato’s Timaeus by Vita Wallace, this program suggests that though the soul of the universe (Anima Mundi) is invisible, it is not imperceptible—it may even be in some sense audible.


Anima Baroque:
Beth Anne Hatton, Soprano
Vita Wallace, Baroque Violin
Motomi Igarashi, Viola da Gamba & Lirone
Christa Patton, Harp
