Circa 1600 presents “Dancing for Julia:  Music associated with the work of musicologist and dance historian Dr. Julia Sutton.” Circa 1600 is dedicated to high renaissance and early baroque music, including lute trios, lute songs, dance music, and vocal polyphony.  With an unusual instrumentation of three lutes complemented by three singers, the group presents rarely-heard music of the time as well as original arrangements following the performance practices of the era. Catherine Bell, soprano; Robert Castellano, lutenist; Donnie Cotter, tenor; Meg Pash, lutenist and mezzo-soprano; Christopher Stetson, lutenist; and guest artist, Alicia DePaolo, soprano.
