Moonday quote 11. 22: In tempus pestis

Due musicisti, nello spazio un po’ angusto della loro abitazione, hanno voluto dedicare questa bella esecuzione agli uomini e alle donne che oggi, nel mondo, soffrono.

Un grazie da me e da tutti i miei lettori.

Beautiful and moving proof of solidarity. Thanks for your beautiful music performed at home in such difficult conditions.

Unquiet Thoughts

“Once the faintest stirring of hope became possible, the dominion of plague was ended.”

Albert Camus, The Plague

Times are particularly troublesome for many just now, and we offer condolences and support to our many friends in disquieting circumstances around the globe.  Particularly Italy.

Rather than rehash the awful news, we offer a few songs produced cooperatively by some of our favorite Italians, Francesco Petrarca, Michelangelo Buonarroti, and Bartolomeo Tromboncino.  We had originally planned to perform a house concert this evening but instead we offer a video with two of the songs that were to have been on the program.

Bartolomeo Tromboncino (c. 1470-1535) was a singer, lutenist and a prolific composer of popular songs from circa 1500. Tromboncino served at the court of Isabella d’Este until his unauthorized departure in 1505, at which time he entered the service of Lucrezia Borgia in Ferrara.
