Sam Brown renaissance lute

Hearts Ease - an Elizabethan lute recital

The core of this programme takes inspiration from the melancholy that was so beloved of the Elizabethans. Far from the depression we associate with it today, melancholy was - to the Renaissance mind - an inspired, darkly consoling state of being. They understood that, in order to be happy, we must also know how to be sad.

Music by Francis Cutting, Jacob Reys, and John Dowland
