Sacred and Secular Music on Friday's Distant Mirror

1580 to 1620 has been called the Golden Age of English Lute Music.  More than 2000 pieces survive. Many are ballad settings and almost all are anonymous.  On Friday's Distant Mirror you can hear several of these performed on lute, orpharion, annd ciittern  by Paul O'Dette.  Also on the program: th Missa Brevis of Palestrina, one of his more substantial and sonorous mass settings to be written in 4 parts.   Peter Phillips directs the Tallis Scholars.  Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.

Allan Kelly is host of Distant Mirror which airs Fridays at 10 pm.
