Friday January 6, 2017 in the Parish Hall of St. Mark’s Church, Berkeley
HALLIFAX & JEFFREY (Peter Hallifax & Julie Jeffrey, viols) with
SHIRA KAMMEN, violin and viola
Fine Knacks: Elizabethan Gems for 3 players
Our January concert will be the fabulous Barefoot house band, viol players Peter Hallifax & Julie Jeffrey, with special guest Shira Kammen, violin and viola. They will play a varied program of Elizabethan and Jacobean music, including music by Dowland, Gibbons, Hume, Coperario, Lupo, and more. Some of the music will be written down, and some of it won’t.
Hallifax & Jeffrey, who started out as a duo playing late French baroque music, have been developing a repertoire of Elizabethan and Jacobean music for several years now. Along this path, they have played many concerts of this music with larger groups featuring Bay Area icon Shira Kammen, but this is the first time the trio has presented an entire program. It will be a varied and exciting program, since there are so many great fantasies and dances in 3 parts from this period, not to mention the eccentric pieces by Tobias Hume for 3 instruments and limitless dance pieces with divisions. You will recognize a lot of the music, but there’s a lot you won’t have heard before.
