Courtly airs & dialogues, with Musicke in the Ayre

22 June @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

A programme of songs to the lute from the reign of Louis XIII – this was the period in which Dumas’ tale of the Three Musketeers was set. Carmel Edwards and Jane Hunt come together again with Din Ghani to explore this elegant repertoire that’s full of charm. The French court composers of the period excel in the art of the Air de cour, painting the “3 Ls” (loving, lauding and languishing) in pastoral tones. The dialogue was a particular favourite sub-genre in this period.

This is Musicke in the Ayre’s second concert in their 2024 series at the glorious St Mary the Virgin in Bathwick.

Refreshments available before and after the performance.
