Early Music ensemble, 'Ursula's Arrow', perform rarely heard arias and duets of Renaissance female composer and virtuoso performer Barbara Strozzi, alongside instrumental works for guitar and harp that would have been heard throughout the streets of 17th Century Venice.
Barbara Strozzi (1619 – 1677) could well be said to have had the ideal upbringing for a bohemian musician, as the ‘natural’ daughter of the Venetian poet Giulio Strozzi. Famed not only for her beauty but also for her talents as a vocalist and composer, she rose to intellectual prominence as a member of the Accademia degli Unisoni. The pupil of the famed operatic composer Francesco Cavalli, the first of her eight published works appeared in 1644, and she was the most published of vocal composers of her time. She never married, supporting herself and her children through her vocal performances, compositions and, it was rumoured, occasional work as a courtesan .
Ursula's Arrow was formed with the aim of bringing early music a modern sensibility, performing works by female composers that have been ignored, repressed and forgotten by musical historians and commissioning new works for period instruments.
They will be performing in the beautiful and intimate venue of the Lumen URC, fast establishing itself as a London favourite for early musicians.
Ursula's Arrow are Sarah Dacey, CN Lester, Toby Carr and Aileen Henry
