Distant Mirror: Oct. 19 - Elizabethan Ballads & Dances
In Elizabethan England popular music was performed by minstrels, dance bands and waits. The lyrics or poems were collected along with popular 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. You can hear several of these Friday night on Distant Mirror as the group Circa 1500 performs. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
