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.
