Luscious lute songs and duets at lunchtime, with works by Dr Thomas Campion - celebrated poet, prolific composer, esteemed physician - who died 400 years ago.
Early song specialists Musicke in the Ayre return to St Stephen's with lutenist leader Din Ghani accompanying Bristol-based sopranos Heido Couper and Ruth Bamfield.
Campion published over a hundred lute songs, as well as several volumes of poetry and other literary works; other composers of the period also used his poetry. This small selection highlights the range of his work: from saucy to spiritual, mirthful to mournful, witty to wistful, but alway entertaining.
