The Friendship Community Choir, based in Athens, GA, brings "So Much Love: Troubadour Songs and Laude Spirituali" to Piccolo. This performance is a musical exploration of secular and sacred love in the medieval period, featuring troubadour songs from 12th century France and Laude Spirituali (devotional songs praising Mary) from 13th century Italy. Director Kevin Kelly, has arranged these melodies for four-part choir, adding a colorful accompaniment with instruments in keeping with those of the medieval period- harp, recorder, violin and percussion- to which he added the more modern saxophone. His intention was not to produce a historic rendition, but to give this music new life in a modern setting. These songs are rarely heard today, yet the beauty of their poetry and melodies deserves a wider hearing.
