In this edition of Ars Antigua Presents, we?re featuring Musique de Joye - joyous songs and dances from 16th century France. Social and political conditions in France during the 16th century were particularly favorable to the growth of popular music. During the long reign of Francis I (1515-47), French composers developed a uniquely new song form, the chanson, which was distinctly national in both poetry and music. While chansons were typically written for voices in polyphony, in the mid-16th century hundreds of chanson transcriptions for the lute and arrangements for solo voice with lute accompaniment were also published. In this performance we will hear members of the Chicago Early Music Consort, under the direction of Gary Berkenstock: Gary Berkenstock - recorder, Stephanie Sheffield - soprano, Phillip W. Serna - bass viol Joel Spears - lute
