Duke Collegium Musicum: Beyond Bawdy: The Dirtiest Music of Medieval and Renaissance Europe 

When: Thu., April 21, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: free
Explicit lyrics—sexual and otherwise—got a bad name during the previous century, when a mildly suggestive locution like “Let’s Spend the Night Together” or even slurred innuendo (“Louie Louie”) could incite controversy and stoke youthful fascination. As Duke’s Collegium Musicum reminds us, dirty lyrics did not originate with 2 Live Crew. This performance will feature the music of Henry Purcell (who wrote an ode to flatulence), Palestrina, and a promised panoply of “polyphonic pervs.” —David Klein
