Huntington Recital Hall, Capital University
1 College and Main, Columbus OH

Les Délices (Debra Nagy, director) & Blue Heron (Scott Metcalfe, director) come together for this program focused on Hope (Esperance), the allegorical character from the world of the Romance of the Rose who sustains a courtly lover through the thousand pains of lovesickness and teaches him to find delight instead of suffering. Songs about Hope explores a group of 14th-century songs in the hypnotic late-medieval style dubbed the Ars subtilior or “more subtle art” that draw inspiration from each other’s words and music. Works by Machaut, Senleches, Caserta, and Galiot, and others.

“...Les Délices’ flawless but laid-back execution make their music instantly accessible to modern audiences.” ClevelandClassical.com
