Event details

National Centre for Early Music

The Amores Pasados quartet, led by the acclaimed tenor John Potter, presents new repertoires for voices, hardanger fiddle and lutes. Featuring texts by Shakespeare and his contemporaries, songs of lost love have been commissioned from John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Tony Banks (Genesis), Sting and Gavin Bryars. These contemporary compositions contrast with songs by Campion and Dowland, and transcriptions of Peter Warlock, Roger Quilter and other composers of the ‘lost’ early 20th century English lute song school.
