Stanislas Germain - Lute and songs
Concert version of the LP of the same name. A program that enlighted the hiden oral tradition of the Renaissance Lute.
Works by Dowland, Sermisy, Mudarra, Capirola and Stanislas Germain. With some improvisations and traditional dances and songs.
The concert is made of songs found here and there, songs from the past, heritage of ancient masters, or composed on the spur of the moment, along the way : such as the story of Richard the Lionheart, king and trouvere, who was detained for years in a dunjeon, or that of a man who dressed up as a bird to make money and seduce women with his singing, only to end up as the victim of a hunter in the forest, or simply the contemplation of a sunset at the family farm in his youth.
