As a prelude to Valentine’s Day, Folger Consort offers a magnificent buffet of romance and poetry with chansons and madrigals on food, drink, and passionate love by French and Italian Renaissance composers such as Janequin and Lasso. Complementing the song is enchanting “table music” for strings, including selections from Schein’s Banchetto Musicale (Musical Banquet), composed as dinner music for the sophisticated courts of Germany. With vocal ensemble Les Canards Chantants and viol consort Arcadia Viols.
