About Lucidarium Ensemble:

Lucidarium is an early music ensemble that specializes in medieval- and Renaissance-era music. This incredibly versatile and adventurous chamber group straddles the boundary between folk and classical traditions in their reconstructions of “overlooked” musical repertoires. In recent years, the group has delved deeply into the little-known Renaissance-era music of Italian Jewry, using period instruments and singing in Italian, Hebrew and Ladino, Yiddish, Giudeo-Italian and Judeo-Spanish. With their combination of meticulous preparation, joyful improvisation and energetic music-making, Lucidarium has garnered both popular and critical acclaim, performing regularly at the leading early music festivals in Europe and North America and making frequent crossovers into Jewish, world and classical music venues. Una Festa Ebraica is a celebration of the life cycle and holidays drawn from the vast and entertaining musical and poetic legacy of the Jewish communities of Renaissance Europe. Working from a variety of sources — traditional liturgical melodies, sung poetry from the 15th and 16th centuries, and the exuberant dances and songs meant for celebrating life’s important moments — Lucidarium recreates the joys of 16th century Jewish life. 

Featuring Gloria Moretti (voice), Enrico Fink (voice), Avery Gosfield (renaissance winds), Marco Ferrari (renaissance winds), Francis Biggi (lute, colascione) and Massimiliano Dragoni (hammer dulcimer, percussion).
