“Love, Lust, Longing… Loss” has proven popular with audiences of all kinds, from those who know every John Dowland song by heart to those who have yet to dip a toe into this amazing repertoire. You will come away with a sense of the richness and range of popular music during the Renaissance – from bawdy tales of soldiers and wenches to heartfelt love songs to tongue-in-cheek lovelorn laments and political satires. This performance will surprise lute song enthusiasts with fresh interpretations of more “well-traveled” songs, and delight them with rarely-performed gems.
We’ll be reprising the Good Pennyworths’ first concert program with soprano Laura Campbell, mezzo Kirsten Kane and tenor Timothy Joyce, with baritone Garald Farnham on lutes. Details can be found on our Dates page and on the Library’s homepage.
