Distant Mirror: Aug. 30 - 'The Romance of the Rose'
The Romance of the Rose is a medieval French poem styled as an allegorical dream vision. It is one of the greatest masterpieces of French literature and influnced much of European culture including Dante and Chaucer. Much of the text was set to music and you can hear several of the resulting chansons on Friday's (8/30) Distant Mirror as the ensemble Alla Francesca performs. And we'll conclude the program with Elizabethan viol music performed by Fretwork. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
