The Charlottesville Baroque Ensemble’s Three Notch’d Road celebrates the revelry of Twelfth Night with spiritual and secular songs from the 18th century. The program includes familiar songs like the pastoral “Greensleeves,” and Michel Corrette’s French carol “A Noel Symphony.” Giovanni Antonio Guido explores sounds of crunching ice in “Winter,” and Biber’s “Nativity” sonata unfolds as an aching, searching homage. The works are contrasted by the lively mirth of 17th century dances, and the courtly textures of Michael Praetorius’ charging coronets and the halting twang of John Playfords’ clavichord.

Friday 1/3 & Saturday 1/4. $15, 7:30pm. Trinity Episcopal Church, 214 W. Beverley Street, Staunton. Saturday at First United Methodist Church, 101 E. Jefferson St., 296-6193.
