"They give brilliant and knowing performances...a strong sense of love and presence."
– Gramophone Magazine, UK 

Early Music group, AGAVE, is renowned for its spirited performances spanning seventeenth to twentieth-century chamber music with "a certain let-down-your-hair quality" (AllMusic). The group has garnered accolades for their performances and recordings, including a GRAMMY nomination for their album with velvet-voiced countertenor Reginald Mobley, American Originals. A celebration of music by mostly Black and brown composers, the program showcases music by Cuban composer Esteban Salas, extraordinary Black American composer Florence B. Price, ragtime master Scott Joplin, and more, as voices unite to create a uniquely American sound. 

Reginald Mobley and Agave Baroque perform David Pohle's Herr, wenn ich nur dich habe, from their new album "Peace In Our Time."
