29.05.13 1pm, Ashmolean Museum, Beaumont St, Oxford OX1 2PH; Free


Join Mascherata in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, for a concert inspired by the Museum’s world-famous holdings of Italian drawings and prints, especially the Museum’s extensive collection of drawings by Raphael – the largest in the world.

Music will include madrigals by Raphael’s contemporaries, Bartolomeo Tromboncino and Francesco Corteccia, instrumental dances and diminutions, selections from the alfabeto repertoire of songs, as well as free improvisation on timeless ground basses.

Mascherata, who were placed third in the 2011 International Early Music Competition, Middelburg, The Netherlands, are made up of Catherine Groom (mezzo-soprano, Renaissance harp, recorders), Adrian Horsewood (baritone, percussion), and Richard MacKenzie (Renaissance lute, Baroque guitar).
