In the era of Elizabeth I, the music onboard ships was astonishingly versatile. Drinking arias alternated with psalms and madrigals, as captains were gentlemen and requested a certain ethical and spiritual standing. From pieces for solo violin to comical arias, from the joy of conquest to homesickness, from religious faith to saucy tunes: this concert offers us a glimpse of a relatively unknown aspect of 16th century music.
