Biography

Mark Rimple is a composer whose works incorporate early instruments and techniques; a Philadelphia area critic dubbed one of his choral works “nothing short of a masterpiece” and another that he “captivates with an obvious and complete understanding of early music structures.” His works have been performed by Parnassus, Network for New Music, The League/ISCM Chamber Players, Mélomanie, and ChoralArts Philadelphia. His Triple Duo: At Sixes and Sevens will be premiered in the near future by Cygnus Ensemble. He is currently at work on a solo composition CD, January: Songs and Chamber Music of Mark Rimple (Furious Artisans) including works for archlute, countertenor, viola da gamba and harpsichord. As a countertenor and lutenist he has garnered critical notice for his interpretation of early music from national newspapers and journals including the Philadelphia Inquirer, The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, The Washington Post, Early Music America, and Early Music (UK). The Philadelphia Inquirer compared the “interpretive specificity” of his lute playing to “a great vocal performance” and the Chicago Tribune praised his “effortless upper notes capable of pinpoint agility.” He is a founding member of TREFOIL and musical director of Musica Humana Vocal Consort. He is a regular guest artist with the Newberry Consort and The Folger Consort, and has appeared with Piffaro, the Renaissance Band, The King’s Noyse, Ex Umbris (at the Clinton White House), New York’s Ensemble for Early Music, Mélomanie, Pomerium, Network for New Music, Cygnus Ensemble and the GEMS production of The Play of Daniel. His writings on the history of music theory have focused largely on the influence of Boethius on 14th – 17th century composers. Dr. Rimple is Professor of Music Theory and Composition at West Chester University of Pennsylvania.
