Robert Devereux

Details

A Rehearsal of the Life and Death of Robert Devereux.

A musical play by Jenny Hill, with lute songs by John Dowland and his contemporaries performed by Merry Melancholy
Jenny Hill, voice, and Simon Nisbett, lute.


Merry Melancholy present a musical play, researched and written by Jenny Hill. The play tells of the rise and fall of Robert Devereux, Second Earl of Essex, his sometimes stormy relationship with Queen Elizabeth, and something of the politics and cultural influences of the latter part of the sixteenth century.

Written in blank verse, it takes the form of a dialogue between a lutenist, Richard, and singer Susannah, as they rehearse for a concert to mark the launch of Gervase Markham’s book in memory of Devereux, “Honour In His Perfection”, which was published in 1624.

Each of the 14 short scenes culminates in a lute song, sublime and magical settings by Dowland, Campion, Rosseter and Bacheler, of poems by Devereux himself and by members of his circle.
