Distant Mirror: Oct. 6 - Orlando di Lasso and Thomas Morley
Roland de Lassus, perhaps more popularly known as Orlando di Lasso, was the chief representative of the mature polyphonic sound of the 16th century Franco-Flemish school. He wrote over 150 chansons that were enormously popular throughout Europe, and on this week's Distant Mirror you can hear several of these performed by the Ensemble Clement Jannequin. There's also music of Elizabethan composer Thomas Morley, represented here in his many roles as composer, publisher and arranger. The Musicians of Swanne Alley perform led by Paul O'Dette and Lyle Nordstrom. Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10.
