MIRA Spring Concert: A Garland for the May QueenA program of mostly English and Franco-Flemish music from the 15th and 16th centuries. The music in the program celebrates the spring, feast days and saints whose feast days are celebrated in the spring. Of special note are a number of 7 and 8-voice works, such as “Ego Flos Campi” by Clemens non Papa, “Andreas Famulus Christi” by Thomas Crequillon and “O Clap your Hands” by Orlando Gibbons. Although the majority of the program is comprised of sacred pieces, MIRA will also offer a spattering of madrigals and love songs.

MIRA is a vocal ensemble that focuses primarily on the rich polyphony of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, particularly of the English and Flemish schools. MIRA also explores medieval music and works by more contemporary composers such as Benjamin Britten, whose compositions reflect the style of earlier periods.
Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, MIRA was founded in 2005 by director Raven Hunter. The ensemble has performed throughout Virginia, most notably at Historic Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg and as a featured ensemble in the Staunton Music Festival Summer Season. MIRA has also performed as a guest choir for the Evensong service at the Washington National Cathedral.
