Peter Croton and L’Isola EnsemblePeter Croton

‘Time stands still’, by John Dowland (1603), is emblematic of the sense of wonder we feel when encountering pure, often unattainable beauty. This suspension of time is also strived for in musical performance – as described in the 16th century, the goal is to transport listeners “into so pleasurable a melancholy that … they remain deprived of all senses save that of hearing …”.

Celebrated versatile lutenist Peter Croton, “lyric poet of the lute”, is joined by L’Isola Ensemble to transport listeners into a timeless journey through English & Italian music from the early 17th century.

This concert will be approximately 75 minutes in duration, without interval.

This concert is in collaboration with the Kellaway Concert Series at St Catharine’s College.
