An Evening of Lute Songs in an Irish Pub!
This concert celebrates the Irish roots of the famous lutenist/composer John Dowland. Using skillful arrangements, it creatively imagines how his tunes would have sounded if played by traditional instrumentalists and singers in a 16th-century pub. Songs such as Mistress Winter’s Jump, My Lady Hundson’s Puffe and Me, Me, None But Me give a flavour of the fun and intrigue of the program.
La Nef is a group of five top-calibre early-music instrumentalists from Montréal, playing lute, cittern, baroque flute, recorder and cello. Joining them is tenor Michael Slattery who has sung early and contemporary opera with major companies and orchestras around the world. To our delight, La Nef have specially arranged several of their tunes for Camerata Nova to join in.
