Musicke in the Ayre continue their season of early music concerts in the Chapel with a recital of very early repertoire for voice and plucked strings.
Din Ghani will use lute and its Spanish counterpart, the vihuela (both made by him) to accompany soprano Carmel Edwards in music originally printed in France, Italy and Spain in the infancy of music publishing, during the first half of the 16th century. This is music marked by its immediacy, and its freshness in spite of its age. The ear will be drawn in by the variations in idiom and style across the three countries, with charming chansons from France, frolicsome frottole from Italy, and pensive villancicos from Spain.
Musicke in the Ayre perform 16th and 17th century vocal music accompanied by lute and related instruments such as archlute, baroque guitar, vihuela and viola da gamba.
July 12th @ 6.30pm – 7.30pm (doors open 6.00pm)
Tickets £10 in advance, £12 on the door
