“Cantiga! Love, Loss and Legend in Early Spain, Italy and the Americas” will span five centuries of choral and instrumental music. The ensemble will be accompanied by early instruments including the harp, medieval fiddle and hurdy-gurdy.
The 12-member group recently received the 2005 Award of Excellence from Chorus America.

The ensemble also will give a master class today at 2:30 in the recital hall of UI’s Lionel Hampton School of Music, and present a program on the performance of early choral and vocal music at the music school on Friday at 11:30 a.m. Both events are free.
