Tibia Recorder Duo — Susanne and the Elders: Settings from the 16th Century
One of the greatest tunes of all time, Susanne un jour, uses a poem by Guillaume Guéroult to tell the story of Susannah from the Book of Daniel (an addition to the book in Catholic and Orthodox Christian churches). The story of the persecuted Susannah struck a chord with composers and painters alike, so we’ll accompany our music with brief visits to paintings by Artemisia Gentileschi, Tintoretto, Jacopo Bassano, and others. We will explore the original polyphonic composition by Didier Lupi Second, and subsequent settings by Orlande de Lassus, Claude Le Jeune, Cipriano de Rore, and Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, and part of Lassus’ Mass based on the chanson. For upper intermediate to advanced recorders. Pitch: A=440.
