Boston area viol player Shirley Hunt has been a member of Sonnambula since 2013 and is proud to bring the group to St. Paul's for a program of Purcell and Byrd with soprano Elise Groves, who has been praised for her "clarion tone" and her "transcendent and soulful" singing.


Praised as superb by The New Yorker, Sonnambula is a Renaissance 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 2018-19 Ensemble in Residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where they will perform a site-specific series at The Met Cloisters. Sonnambula has also performed on a st of historic viols from the Met Museums collection, and the ensemble has been featured at the Amherst and Madison Early Music Festivals. Other recent engagements include concerts at Strathmore, Alice Tully Hall, The Hispanic Society of America, Princeton University, Columbia University, Spectrum, The Frick Collection, The Museum of Biblical Art, and other venues throughout the Northeast.
