Top Tunes of the 1550's on Friday's Distant Mirror
The Ensemble Clement Janequin visits Distant Mirror with the top tunes of the 1550's from their collection called Fricassee Parisienne: Popular Chansons from the French Renaissance. Hear selections by Sandrin, Sermisy, Crecquillon and others. Then, one of the more popular suites of dances from the late Renaissance, the Terpsichore Dances of Michael Praetorius performed by the Early Music Consort of London under David Munrow. We conclude with the Magnificat of English Tudor composer Christopher Tye. The Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford performs. Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10.
