And here’s another “user review” of the Utrecht event, from another of the Festival’s feautured soloists. Thanks, Catalina Vicens!

“These two power women and outstanding musicians left us (the audience) speechless after their concert of English medieval music and poetry at the Utrecht Early Music Festival. The combination of simplicity, intensity, variety and eloquence made us think that the Muses were there to share their timeless beauty. Something to look up to. Thank you Anne Azéma and Shira Kammen!”

Camerata’s residency at MIT was a great success!

It’s by François Camper, who says he came out of retirement in order to write this lovely, touching appreciation of Camerata and of Anne Azéma. Our thanks to him, and we hope to enjoy his presence at many concerts to come!
J’ai raccroché les stylos il y a maintenant quelques années. Pour laisser aux autres le plaisir de rendre compte de leurs belles rencontres musicales. (more…)

We enjoyed reading Mr. Purdy’s reminiscence…

Sing We Noel: Christmas from England and Early America with the Boston Camerata conducted by Joel Cohen
“When I was in college I wanted to audition for the Boston Camerata. Dream on. I’ve loved their work since I was 12. This was recorded in the 70s. In those days I lived in a basement apartment in Boston. Three pilots from Air Nigeria lived across the hall. One of their ideas of a party was blasting track 1 of this CD day and night. I loved it. I never complained.”
