In the Mode: March 16, 2014

The Lute was a most useful instrument in early times, it was important to have a lutenist at court to entertain, either to accompany singers telling tales, sometimes he was also the singer; the most important instrument for secular music in the Renaissance. There are many lutenists active today, and next time on In the Mode we’ll hear lute duets played by Ronn McFarlane and William Simms.
