In Dirges Sad Delight is a rumination on death, on sorrow, on what lies beyond this material veil. The poets and composers of 17th-century England returned time and again to these themes, through both sacred and secular works, examining the purgation of the soul at its passing, and the effects of death upon those still living. In this program, Memento Mori offers works by John Dowland, John Danyel, Thomas Campion, John Coprario, and other luminaries of the English Renaissance in a mournful reverie realized by the voice, the lute, and the viol. Experience catharsis and solace as we walk up against the barrier between nature and mortality.
- Sarah Coffman – soprano, viola da gamba
- Charles Iner – lute
