Event description

Description

In The Sounds of Time, TENET explores 12th and 13th century songs by the French trouvères in a program under guest music director Robert Mealy. The trouvères took over many of the forms invented by their Provençal counterparts, the troubadours, but also infused a new, lighter vein into this great lyric tradition: the combination produced a memorably tuneful body of music, in which “high art” songs of courtly love jostle shoulders with cheeky tales, and where eloquent monodies share the same page with infectiously rhythmic dance-tunes.


Reception with light refreshments at 6:30, music to begin at 7:00pm.
