In Darkness Let Me Dwell: Songs of Nigh and Desire @ Galway Early Music Festival

Sunday, 27 May 2018, 9.00pm

Aisling Kenny (Soprano), Ziv Braha (lute)

In the duo’s debut at Galway Early Music Festival, Galway soprano, Aisling Kenny and Israeli lutenist, Ziv Braha, present a late-evening concert of English renaissance lute song by John Dowland, John Danyel, and Thomas Campion. Exploring the theme of darkness in its many guises, the programme features some of the most profound and beautiful works of the period including Dowland’s poignant In darkness let me dwell and Danyel’s moving trilogy, Grief keep within. Voice and strings are interwoven to express the poetry of these songs, some of which convey the most profound human passions, while others embody Ficino’s philosophy of inspired melancholy. Performed on a 10-course lute by Stephen Gottlieb, with a keen sensitivity to historical performance, the concert will be candlelit in the intimate and atmospheric space of St Joseph’s Church.

Tickets: €12 / €10 concessions /€6 with student card
