Early Music Voices presents Dowland Lachrimae

October 25, 2019 @ 7:30 pm MDT

$35 – $40
Published in 1604, English Renaissance composer John Dowland’s Lachrimae (lah-kree-may) is an iconic work that defies the 21st century concept of sound bites or tweets. Slow, rich in harmony with time for contemplation, the sonnet that the original song was set to, speaks of the pain of love lost.

This beautiful program featuring Montréal’s renowned viol consort alternates Lachrimae Pavans with exquisite lute solos under the masterful hands of Nigel North. The ensemble will also perform a piece by Montréal-based composer Stacey Brown. It’s a 21st-century take on Lachrimae which was commissioned by Early Music Vancouver.

The pre-concert talk will take place at 7pm and the concert will start at 7:30pm.
