FIRES IN PARIS - Cambridge Early Music Concert Series 2008 - Music from mid-16th-century France

Date: 13 Sep 2008 - 19:30
Event details: Three members of Fires of Love, a versatile and unusual combination of voices and instruments, attended CEMSS courses, and now they are one of Scotland's leading ensembles specialising in Renaissance and early Baroque music. This concert focuses on the virtuoso musician, teacher, composer, arranger, and music publisher Adrian Le Roy. His amazing career coincided with the horrors of the French Wars of Religion, in which perhaps four million people were killed. The programme includes a group of songs with Renaissance guitar accompaniment, which are believed to be the first guitar songs published anywhere - a very distant forerunner of rock and roll.
