Lutes and Love
November 23, 2008
United Presbyterian Church
The duo Elizabethan Conversation was formed in Aurora, NY in 1982 as a renaissance lute duet by Dr. Susan Sandman and Mr. Derwood Crocker. Current performances also include recorder and viola da gamba. They achieve musically pleasing and exciting performances on period instruments by combining scholarship in historical performance with individual judgment, and mixing in the magic of the moment.
Elizabethan Conversation is now working with wonderful soprano, Rebecca Furbush-Bayer, an Ithaca native who went away to earn a masters in early music. Together they have developed a music program called "Lutes and Love" -- Musik from Shakespeare's Time. The various styles include complex lute songs, rhythmic Spanish variations, and light hearted stage music, all performed on lutes, viols, recorder, and voice.
