Notes & Reviews:

Elizabeth Kenny's Theatre of the Ayre reveals some of the most extraordinary music of the 17th century on The Masque of Moments, their debut recording for Linn. Focusing on the "Ayre", the central part of a Masque, it offers a fascinating glimpse of the audacious and experimental virtuosity that is often absent from our image of English music of this time. Inspired by the achievements of the "Luts and Voices", Kenny developed The Masque of Moments in 2015, highlighting the glories of little-known vocal music from the Jacobean and Caroline masque. Founded in 2007, Theatre of the Ayre is Elizabeth Kenny's platform for bringing dramatically-minded singers and players together to create inspirational programmes of 17th century music. They have performed in and broadcast from major festivals across the UK, Belgium and Germany. "This early music ensemble has made an asset of obscurity. Its weapons: a freshness of approach and a quasi-improvisatory freedom of delivery." (Financial Times) "It's not often you witness a player attacking their instrument with a bottleneck while another strokes theirs with a quill...both created sublime musical expressions of melancholy." (The Guardian)
