Variant 6

Philly’s hottest new vocal ensemble, Variant 6 (Jessica Beebe, Rebecca Myers, Elisa Sutherland, Steven
Bradshaw, James Reese, and Daniel Schwartz) is a virtuosic vocal sextet that explores and advances the
art of chamber music in the twenty-first century. Here they present a program that traces the influence
of the madrigal from its roots in Italy to the German parodies of Schütz and the courtly music of
Charpentier and Lully. Themes of pastoral love and attraction appear again and again as the program
tracks across Europe.

Italian Madrigals – Heinrich Schütz
Volgendo il ciel (Madrigals Book XIII) – Claudio Monteverdi
Selections from Ballet Royal d'Alciadne and Italian airs – Jean-Baptiste Lully
