Distant Mirror: July 12 - Chansons by Roland de Lassus
Roland de Lassus, perhaps more popularly known as Orlando di Lasso, was the chief representative of the polyphonic sound of the sixteenth century Franco-Flemish school. He wrote over 150 chansons that were enormously popular throughout Europe, and on Friday's (7/12) Distant Mirror you can hear several of these performed by the Ensemble Clement Jannequin. There's also music by Torelli, Morley and Couperin. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
