In the Mode: August 18, 2013
Next time on In the Mode we’ll hear music with roots back to the sibyls of antiquity. The Hilliard Ensemble sings Prophetiae Sibyllarum by Orlando di Lasso. Words that are attributed to the sibyls, supposedly telling of the coming of Christ, but are actually by early Christians. We don’t really know what the sibyls said, we only know that they gave doom-laden predictions in Greek verse.
