Lachrimae, an early music group at Franklin Pierce University, will offer three spring performances in the Monadnock region. Lachrimae is a small, select group of student singers and players who perform the music and dance of the Middle Ages and Renaissance in period costume.

Lachrimae’s program, “The Return of Spring,” consists predominantly of music from the English Renaissance. Come step back in time with them to enjoy six songs written by English Renaissance composer and singer John Dowland in celebration of the 450th anniversary of his birth. Renaissance music from Germany and Italy will also be performed. Singing is accompanied by instruments from the time period, such as recorders and the harpsichord.
