The evolution of the instrumental suite from Medieval to the Baroque

The instrumental suite or sonata de camera – the practice of linking related pieces of music to form a larger work – began with dances in Medieval times.  This practice was taken up by instrumentalists in the Renaissance and evolved into an important musical style in the Baroque.

In this concert, the Early Music Consort of Melbourne and the Rippon-Lea Baroque dancers will delight you with an exploration of the suite through the works of Attaingnant, Tomkins, Schein, Locke and others.

Date: 13 February 2022 (Sunday)
Time: 2pm

Trinity Brighton Uniting Church

15 Black Street,

COVID-19 – Concerts update

Due to the increasingly serious situation with COVID-19, the Courtly Arts Performers of Victoria Inc. have decided, with regret, to cancel the May 2020 ‘Steps Back in Time’ concerts. We plan to incorporate the repertoire into the November/December 2020 Christmas pageants.  This decision was taken to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our performers, our patrons and our audience community.

These uncertain times will have a significant impact on our live performance industry and we stand with our arts community in this crisis. In the coming weeks, we will be working on ways to bring the joy of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque dance and music to you via our website and social media.

Thank you for your patronage and support during this time.
