Distant Mirror: August 10 - Music of Machaut and Palestrina
All the horrors of the 14th century are captured by the greatest poet/composer of the time, Guillaume de Machaut, in his compilation The Judgment of the King of Navarre Friday night on Distant Mirror. Hear several ballades from this major work as the Ensemble Gilles Binchois performs led by Dominque Vellard. Also on the program, hear soprano Emily van Evera sing William Byrd's setting of a text by Sir Phillip Sidney, "O Lord, how vain are all our frail delights". Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
