Arcadia Viols presents a thought-provoking tour of English, German and contemporary American music for viol consort and lute. The program opens with selections from John Dowland’s Lachrimae, or Seaven Teares, followed by the solo lute version of the first piece of the collection, the famous Flow, my tears. The ensemble offers a wonderful fantasy on the Lachrimae composed for Arcadia Viols by Will Ayton. English pieces based on the hexachord lead to the world premiere of Larry Wallach’s Restless Hexachords for five viols. German music concludes the tour with a suite of dances, Froberger’s fantasia on the hexachord, and the appealing Canzona Bergamasca by Samuel Scheidt.
