Distant Mirror: Feb. 8 - Secular Music from Court of Alfonso the Wise

Feb 8, 2019

Nearly all Early Music enthusiasts are familiar with the Cantigas of Santa Maria from the 13th century court of Alfonso the Wise of Castile but did you know that a collection of secular music may also have existed at Alfonso's court? The Dufay Collective has done exhaustive research on the instruments of the day as well as on the secular styles then in vogue , and has put together music that very well may have been performed at Alfonso's court, and you can hear several of these pieces on Friday's Distant Mirror.  Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
