The Flemish composer Loenora Duarte wrote this music around the 1640s and 1650s. This album features his complete works, as well as works by other composers of the period including John Bull and John Jenkins. The works are performed on period instruments. Praised as "remarkable" and "superb" by the New Yorker, Sonnambula is a historical-informed ensemble that brings to light unknown music for various combinations of early instruments with the lush sound of the viol at the core. Sonnambula holds the position of Ensemble in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2018-2019, where they have designed a site-specific series at The Cloisters Museum; the group is the first historically-informed ensemble to hold this position, typically given to a string quartet.
