Songs Across the Sea

By the late 16th century, England had already joined the European Union–at least so far as music was concerned. The work of continental composers were widely known there, thanks to printed editions; the same poets who inspired the songs of French and Italian–Petrarch, Ronsard, Ariosto–topped the best-seller lists in brilliant translations. On Saturday, January 30th, soprano Linda Tsatsanis and lutenist John Lenti take us on a tour of the repertory that graced the leisure hours of amateurs and professional courtly entertainments as well.  The main subject of song–love, of course. Just the thing to get us in the mood for Valentine’s Day. Expect some special guests to join Linda and John to kick off the celebration.
