ANNE BOLEYN’S SONGBOOK: MUSIC & PASSIONS OF A TUDOR QUEEN
Sunday 13 September, 7.00pm
Monday 14 September, 8.00pm
Alamire returns to the Wanamaker Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe, to explore motets and chansons by the greatest composers of the early 16th century, including Compre, Mouton, Brumel and Josquin, interspersed with French chansons and instrumental items for the lute and harp. Also included is a haunting setting of ‘O death rock me asleep’, the poem, thought by some, to have been written by Anne as she awaited her fate in the Tower of London.
