Distant Mirror: Sept. 27 - Elizabethan Lute Music

1580 to 1620 has been called the golden age of English lute music.  More than 2000 pieces survive and many are ballad settings and almsot all are anonymous.  On Friday's (9/27) Distant Mirror you can hear several of these performed by Paul O'Dette on lute, orpharion and cittern, from his cd Robin Hood: Elizabethan Ballad Settings.  Also on the program the Missa Brevis of Palestrina with  the Tallis Scholars directed by Peter Phillips. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm. 

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