An afternoon of Renaissance and Mannerist love songs
BRATTLEBORO - The Brattleboro Camerata will perform an afternoon of Renaissance love songs Sunday, April 24, at 4 pm at the Brattleboro Music Center.
The concert, titled “To Live in Pleasure,” will feature love-centric works in six different languages, just in time for spring. It will include works by English, Italian, Spanish, and French composers, spanning the very early Renaissance to late Renaissance and Mannerist works, with music by favorite madrigalists like Thomas Morley and Jacques Arcadelt, as well as works by less familiar names like Maddalena Casulana and Juan del Encina. It will be a roller-coaster ride through the pleasure and pain of love.
Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door, and are available through www.bmcvt.org or by calling (802) 257-4523.
