Il Poverello - the little poor one - was the name given to Francis of Assisi, who had such influence in his lifetime that he was canonized only two years after his death in 1228. He didn’t start out poor, his father was a wealthy merchant and as a young man, Francis led a worldly carefree life, was not always a good boy.  He is the patron saint of animals and in 1980 Pope John Paul II made him saint of ecologists, his statue is in many gardens today.

This week on In the Mode, we’ll hear some elegant melancholy, Dowland’s Lachrimae. There was a time when it was fashionable to be sad, there was even the cult of melancholy.  In 1604, Dowland published a collection called “Lachrimae or Seven Teares”, based on his song Flow My Tears, performed on violas da gamba by Jordi Savall and Hesperion XX.

This week on In The Mode, host Kristina Herrick features music from Llibre Vermell, the Red Book of Montserrat. This was music written for a very specific reason. The monastery at Monserrat had nowhere for the travelers to stay so they slept in the church itself. Not wanting to risk turning their church into a place where vulgar songs might be sung, the monks there wrote music that combined both the sound and feel of popular medieval Spanish music with the lessons of the church, really interesting music, Kristina Herrick hosts.
