Samson at Home

Sandra Mangsen - harpsichord

 

Sandra Mangsen (harpsichord) retired to North Bennington in 2011 after teaching musicology, harpsichord, and historical performance at the University of Western Ontario  (London, Ontario) for twenty-three years.  She has also taught at McGill, Queen's University (Kingston, Ontario) and Temple University and holds degrees in musicology (Cornell University) and harpsichord performance (McGill University), and an undergraduate degree in sociology (Oberlin College).  She founded Bennington Baroque in 2012 in order to present historically informed performances of baroque music and to justify giving her two harpsichords house space. Sandra's book, Songs without Words: Keyboard Arrangements of Vocal Music in England, 1560 to 1760, was published by the University of Rochester Press (Eastman Studies in Music, 2016). Her 1992 recording of French harpsichord music, Entretiens, is available from CDBaby. 

 

Mat Langlois - baroque flute

A performer and scholar, Mathieu Langlois (flute) holds degrees from Western University (Canada) and the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (The Netherlands), and has held grants from the Canadian Bureau for International Education and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. A student of Wilbert Hazelzet and Kate Clark, Mathieu has concertized on baroque and renaissance flutes with the Attaignant Consort, the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Society, the Rotterdam Baroque Ensemble, the Musica Viva Orchestra, the Bach Orchestra of The Netherlands, and Bennington Baroque. Mathieu is currently completing a Ph.D. in musicology at Cornell University. Mathieu was director of Cornell's performance practice ensemble, Les Petits Violons, from 2010-2012, and was the founding director of Cornell’s Renaissance Wind Consort in 2013-2014.
