By Francisco Salazar

Chatham Baroque will present The Baltimore Consort’s performance “In Angel’s Wede: Music of Mary, Queen of Scots.”

The concert will be held on Nov. 18 at Calvary Episcopal Church and will feature live narration by Emmy Award-winning television and radio personality Robert Aubry Davis. The event will also showcase Scottish, Italian, French, and English music highlighting different periods of Mary Queen of Scots’ life.

The Baltimore Consort’s program will include soloists Danielle Svonavec (soprano), Mindy Rosenfield (winds), Mary Anne Ballard (viols), Larry Lipkis (viols and recorders), Mark Cudek (cittern), and Ronn McFarlane (lute).

Mark Cudek, founding member of The Baltimore Consort said, “In addition to Scottish music this program incorporates music from the French court Mary would have heard in her childhood, English music from the end of her life, and a short detour to the Italy of her murdered secretary, the lutenist David Rizzio.”
