Angels & Aristocrats, Level 5
Hear 16th and 17th-century music from Italy, England, France, and Germany, performed by New Zealand’s lute quartet, Straynge Discorde.
Straynge Discorde features New Zealand’s finest lutenists: William Bower, Don King, Stephen Pickett, and William McElwee. The quartet aims to recreate the magical sound of lute ensembles from the 16th and 17th-century houses and courts of Europe. They play songs, dances, and fantasias by composers such as John Dowland, Anthony Holborne, Thomas Morley, and Simone Molinaro.
