Distant Mirror: Dec. 8 - A Handful of Pleasant Delites

In Elizabethan England  popular music was performed by minstrels, dance bands and waits. The lyrics of poems were collected along with appropriate tunes into little books, and one of the more famous  was A Handful  of Pleasant Delites which consisted of sacred pieces, bawdy, amorous, something for every taste. Hear several of these on Friday's Distant Mirror. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
