Love is…

Throughout the ages, composers have used music to express romantic love. From Renaissance chansons, to the lieder of the Romantic era and the emotional ballads of today, music gives an emotional power to words of love.

This Valentine’s season is the perfect time to discover the sweet and passionate love songs of the Renaissance era, and our concert is the perfect place to meet and mingle with other lovers of Renaissance music.
