MusiCians in Ordinary: Hallie Fishel, soprano and John Edwards, lute. Soprano Hallie Fishel and lutenist John Edwards are the core musicians of "Musicians in Ordinary", an early music ensemble that specializes in the performance, based on their own musicological research, of early Baroque music. The name, "Musicians in Ordinary" is the term used in the account books of England's King Charles I, for those musicians privileged to enter and perform in the exclusive inner chambers of the court. The "lute songs" of the composers of the period, such as John Dowland and Matthew ~eke ~ave an important place m Halhe and John's repertoire. On May 16 they have a concert at the Church of the Redeemer at which they will be performing music written in the 17th century by Italian composers who worked in Oermany and German composers who either worked in Italy or who wrote in an Italian or English style. The music that they use·is primarily facsimiles. (not faxes!) of the original editions - co~plete ~ilh lypos (John pomted th1s out with glee)! A r1emark~bl~ fact about this repertOire IS that many of the c~mpositions on the program · w11l be North American premieres. Tafelmusik violinist, Chris Verrette will join them for this sonce'rt. As Hallie spoke of her musical genesis as a violinist in rural Indiana (not far from Bloomington ), and her studies as an opera major at the University of Indiana studies in early music in Bos~on and later back at VI with the le~endary Thomas Binkley, she sa1d that one of the things that drew her to early music performance was the opportunity to combine scholarly work with work as a performer. John, who teaches, accompanies (on lute) and . coaches singers at the V of T Faculty of Music and at the Royal ~?nservatory of music, was ongmally a classical guitarist. A major attraction of the lute for him was that it offered more opportunities fgr ensemble playing than the guitar. He studied lute first with Terry McKenna in Toronto and then with Christopher Wilson in London (England). They have recently returned from a tour of England. Their plans for after May 16 include a concert on Toronto Island in June, a September concert in · Toronto of John Dowland's music and a concert in February 1999 in Indianapolis of music written by women composers in the 16th and 17th centuries.
