Listening to Pictures: Art and Music in the Early Renaissance
Join early music vocal group, Orlando Consort, for their programme entitled Listening to Pictures: Art and Music in the Early Renaissance. Illustrated with stunning projected images interacting with exquisite music, the Orlando Consort offers a fascinating representation of the synergy that lies at the heart of Renaissance culture. The concert reveals through the works of artists such as Fra Angelico, Lucca della Robbia and Carlo Crivelli and composers including Guillaume Dufay, Loyset Compère and Josquin Desprez how ethereal visions of earthly and heavenly delights were moulded and formed to reflect on and guide the lives of those fortunate audiences who first witnessed them.
