Folger Consort performed Ballets and Brawls: French Music of Court and Countryside in the Folger's Elizabethan Theatre. For a delightful springtime concert, the Consort performed a program of French romance and wit circa 1610. France was also influenced by the great revolution in musical taste that occurred at the beginning of the 17th century, but French music developed in very different directions than Italian Baroque. In French court entertainments, dance reigned supreme. The Consort program included charming dances, complemented by songs for voice and lute, in both sophisticated and rustic styles, including witty, amorous dialogues for baritone and soprano.

Giuseppe Arcimboldo's Spring (1573).
