Off the Shelf- Episode 17: Sacred Repertories with Peter Bennett
Joining me for episode 17 of Off the Shelf is Peter Bennett. Peter is assistant professor of music here at CWRU and recently the author of Sacred Repertories in Paris Under Louis XIII. In addition to his research interests and teaching schedule, Peter is an active performer, appearing regularly as a continuo player with Apollo’s Fire, Cleveland’s baroque orchestra. Indeed, he has just returned from a successful tour with Apollo's Fire during which they performed Monteverdi's Vespers to sold out audiences across the country. And the campus community heard Peter perform on the wonderful Norton Memorial organ in Severance Hall, where he played during the university's fall convocation.
Peter's recordings with Ensemble Dumont, of which he was founder, can be found on the Linn Recordings website. The opening of this episode features a clip of the piece Veni Sponsa Mea from a recording by the ensemble entitled Henri Dumont: Les Litanies De La Vierge.
