In the Mode: January 26, 2014

In the Mode will feature the lute---a bunch of lutes next time, voices too. We usually think of the lute as a solo instrument, or accompanying a singer, often the lutenist was both.  This program shows that lutes were frequently brought together into ensembles, most often duets, but sometimes the groups were larger, trios and quartets might have played for dancing, and masques. 

CD title:  Three, Four and Twenty Lutes

Performers: Jakob Lindberg, Robert Meunier, Nigel North, Paul O’Dette

CD label: MHS 512204
