Hommage à l’amour - Love Songs from the Renaissance


A tribute to Renaissance music featuring love songs from France, England and Italy. The age of humanism and discoveries is at the same time the high point of Renaissance polyphony, music printing, and the dissemination of secular music. “Hommage à l’ Amour”, a concert inspired by Valentine’s Day, presents known and rare renaissance songs in various languages, thus highlighting the early national styles of the 16th century.
