American lute song duo Ron Andrico and Donna Stewart specialize in thoughtful programming illuminating the vibrant mingling of renaissance music and poetry. Mignarda captures the intricacy of 16th century music for voice and lute with warmth and style.

“The lute is actually pretty well considered to be derived from the Arabic oud,” Andrico explains. Though its origins aren’t certain, it was popular for hundreds of years in European history. “A lutist was a very intimate sort of part of the royal household. They were there, you know, you can’t just switch on the CD player or radio and listen to music… you had to have a person playing it to you,” says Stewart. They bring that close style to their performance.
