Event Details

The 'Fire of Love' explores the nature of love across the ages.  Fire, perhaps the most powerful of all elements, signifies heat, purification and change.  Young love, sweet love, old love, any kind of love is worth a song or two.  From the courtly romance of the troubadours to the sensuous madrigal musings of Marenzio, this concert explores the fire of emotion stretching all the way to the classic songs of Jacques Brel and Cole Porter.  And some recent but equally poignant love songs by Bon Iver and Pink prove our point: love is eternal.

    Pink and Billy Mann, Glitter in the Air
    Raimbaud de Vaqueiras, Calenda Maya
    Songs from Carmina Burana
    Luca Marenzio, Baci Soavi e Cari
    Josquin Desprez, Baisez-moi and other chansons
    Jacques Brel, La chanson des vieux Amants
    Martin Wesley-Smith, Together
