Whether sung by a medieval minstrel or crooned by a lonesome cowboy, love has been explored in music more than any other topic. We’ll sample the music of love from Eros to Agape, from Marian motets and the love songs of Solomon to unrequited courtly love, from the sweet chansons of Paris to the bawdy tavern songs of Olde England.
This workshop is intended for low-intermediate to advanced recorder players. Voices, strings, early reeds & brass are welcome in various classes, as noted in the class description.
