With Clouds Descending: An Advent Songfest

Sunday, December 12, 2021, at 7:00 PM

Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 498 Prince Avenue, Athens, Georgia 30601

Amethyst Baroque Ensemble performs works written before 1750 on instruments copied from historical originals. Amethyst members Alexandra Dunbar (harpsichord and organ), Jody Miller (recorder), Adrin Akins (countertenor), and Marcy Jean Brenner (viola da gamba), are joined by Baroque violinist Ian Jones in this program of Advent music.  The four Sundays leading to Christmas are a time of excitement as we await the birth of Christ. From ancient plainsong to the cantatas of J.S. Bach, Amethyst Baroque celebrates the more joyous aspect of the Advent season.

Admission is free and open to the public.  Donations accepted to Amethyst Baroque or Emmanuel Church's music ministry.

About Amethyst Baroque

The recorder and the harpsichord each played substantial roles in music of the 17th and 18th centuries.  Artistic Directors Dr. Alexandra Dunbar and Jody Miller bring the two instruments together to play the chamber music that may have originally been performed to entertain small groups in the salon.
