Fallen Angels

800 Bagby Street Houston, TX 77002

Fallen Angels highlights the paranormal in Baroque music, from Giacomo Carissimi’s harrowing Judgement of Solomon to spirited masques from Henry Purcell’s Fairy Queen. With four extraordinary singers and a colorful Baroque orchestra of period strings and winds, this otherworldly program inaugurates an entire season devoted to musical magic of various kinds.

Grammy-nominated ensemble Ars Lyrica Houston specializes in music from the Baroque era, transporting listeners back in time to the “golden age” of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. With a season featuring both masterworks and hidden gems, Ars Lyrica’s programs are performed on period instruments with careful attention to historical style and context.
