Les Délices (Debra Nagy, director) & Blue Heron (Scott Metcalfe, director) come together for this program focused on Hope (Esperance), the allegorical character from the world of the Romance of the Rose who sustains a courtly lover through the thousand pains of lovesickness and teaches him to find delight instead of suffering. Songs about Hope explores a group of 14th-century songs in the hypnotic late-medieval style dubbed the Ars subtilior or “more subtle art” that draw inspiration from each other’s words and music. Works by Machaut, Senleches, Caserta, and Galiot, and others.
