The Faithful Shepherdess
Ceruleo, early music ensemble
John Fletchers The Faithful Shepherdess was premiered in 1608 and is the first example of Fletchers influential definition of tragicomedy. The tales heroine is Clorin, a virgin shepherdess and skilled healer who lives in solitude near the grave of her first love. During the course of the play various couples are thrown into emotional turmoil and Clorin heals and reconciles them.
In this programme, Ceruleo explore the themes of love and loss in The Faithful Shepherdess, interspersing extracts from Fletchers play with music from Monteverdis Seventh Book of Madrigals and his contemporaries, including Notari, Frescobaldi, Rossi and Luzzaschi.
