Mistress: A Celebration of the 400th Anniversary of the Birth of America’s First Poet, Mistress Anne Bradstreet

Featuring the premiere of Contemplations (8, 9) composed by Hilary Tann especially for Cappella Clausura’s celebration of Anne Bradstreet’s quatricentennial. The piece will be played in tandem with Contemplations (21, 22), written earlier. In addition, we feature two works by Dorothy Crawford: A Portrait of Anne Bradstreet, based on her letters and poems, and a new work, Naushon. Finally, we fold in madrigals and motets by Bradstreet’s equally remarkable musical contemporaries, Barbara Strozzi and Isabella Leonarda.
