Distant Mirror: Sept. 13 - A Handful of Pleasant Delites
In Elizabethan England popular music was performed by minstrels, dance bands and waits. The lyrics or poems were collected along with appropriate 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 on Friday's (9/13) Distant Mirror as the ensemble Circa 1500 performs led by Nancy Hadden. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
