ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ENSEMBLE TOSS THE FEATHERS

Féileacán
A la frontière entre répertoire traditionnel et ancien
On the cusp of traditional and early music

Dimitri Boekhoorn, early harps & whistles
Tina Chancey, viola da gamba & renaissance violin
Valerie Loomer, theorbo, renaissance guitar & cittern

During the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish composers invented a new sort of ‘chamber music.’ In addition to ballads and dance tunes, they wrote variations over repeating basses, sonatas, suites, ‘dompes’ and ‘ports.’
This inspired fusion of popular and classical music offers modern audiences a repertoire that blends refined taste and sparkling energy, elegance and vibrant enthusiasm, harmonic complexity and rhythmic spontaneity.

We play this music on instruments that the composers knew : harps, renaissance violin, Irish whistles, theorbo, viola da gamba, and renaissance guitar. Many of the tunes that we perform are still played by traditional musicians today.

Féileacán ('fée-le-cahne' in French, 'fay-luh-cahn' in English) is the Gaelic word for butterfly.
