Early music ensemble Sonnambula will present a program of previously unperformed works of 17th-century composer Simon Ives, an overlooked master of the Golden Age of English consort music. Ives adapted the musical idioms of his time—the legacy of English liturgical polyphony, the Italian madrigal and the dance-like Italian canzona—to his own particular vision. The concert will feature work for two to six viols by Ives, his teacher, John Ward, and their contemporaries Lawes, Rogers and Jenkins. Thursday, April 19 at 8 p.m. Park Avenue Christian Church, 1010 Park Ave. Tickets are $25, $15 for students.
