      Boston Camerata "The Play of Daniel"

      The Boston Camerata comes to St. Paul's to present the medieval play of "Daniel" on February 2, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. A ticket is required for this performance. Tickets available at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 1444 Liberty St SE, M-TH 9-4.
      Once again the church will be transformed into a theater with lights, costumes and music. The Old Testament prophecies of Daniel, a young captive in corrupt Babylon, will ring forth. This stunning, contemporary new production by Artistic Director, Anne Azéma, is one of the greatest musical plays from the French Middle Ages. Accompanied by early instruments the ensemble will be joined by some of St. Paul's singers both young and mature.

      The Boston Camerata is an early music ensemble based in Boston, Massachusetts. Its was founded in 1954 by Narcissa Williamson at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as an adjunct to that museum's instrument collection. The Camerata incorporated as an independent nonprofit in 1974. It was directed from 1969 to 2008 by Joel Cohen, who remains active as Music Director Emeritus. Since 2008 the company's artistic director has been French-born singer and scholar Anne Azéma. A regular subscription series is offered to Boston-area residents, as well as tours in the United States and abroad. In 2011, Camerata was in residence in Reims, France contributing five programs of medieval French music to the 800th anniversary celebration of the Reims Cathedral.

      Camerata's numerous recordings on various labels include programs on Harmonia Mudi, Erato, Telefunken, and Warner Classics. Among the ensemble's awards are the Grand Prix du Disque (1987) for a medieval version of the Tristan and Iseult legend.
