The Corners of the Moon: Uncanny Music for Hallowmas
Grace Episcopal Church (14 Boltwood Ave., Amherst, MA 01002, Amherst MA)
This delightful spooky program for the Hallowmas season depicts ghost encounters, witches’ dances, mad songs, fantastic beasts and more. You’ll hear ghoulish masquing tunes by Campion and Johnson, bizarre instrumental works by Picforth and Lawes, eerie tales of supernatural beings and fairy mayhem, and we’ll take a 17th-century trip to the Moon. We round out this unearthly program with our original settings of broadside ballads about Tom o’ Bedlam’s deranged exploits and the midnight antics of mischievous Robin Goodfellow. Will good magic win in the end?
We’re pleased to join our friends In Stile Moderno for this very scary happening. Join us outside for cookies and cider after the show!
