 OUR MISSION

Incantare strives to highlight the musical and cultural connections of underexplored musicians from the Renaissance and early Baroque periods, especially music by composers, singers, and instrumentalists from marginalized communities in early modern Europe. A shared passion for this music and historically informed performance brought the ensemble together. The group strives to discover, research, transcribe, teach, and perform works that may not have been heard since their conception.

The consort of sackbuts and violins has a long history and a unique sound that incorporates the vocal qualities of both instruments while retaining each of their distinct timbres, making it the perfect medium for performing the beautiful, works from this rich musical time period.
