The Shadow of Night: Magic and Mysticism for All Hallow’s Eve

Houston Early Music’s 2022-23 season will open Saturday, Oct. 22, with The Shadow of Night: Magic and Mysticism for All Hallow’s Eve at Matchbox 4, Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston, 3400 Main St. in Houston, 77002. The evening will open with a talk at 6:45 p.m. followed by the concert at 7:30 p.m. Santa Fe, New Mexico-based Severall Friends, joined by actor Jonathan Richards, will weave excerpts from Renaissance-era diaries, diatribes, drama and poetry into the concert. The content reflects an intense interest in the occult in medieval England and shows how it shaped music, poetry, and day-to-day life.
