The dulcian, a rarely heard Renaissance flute; and the lute will be showcased in “Winds of the Renaissance,” an evening of 16th and early 17th century chamber music presented by Salish Sea Early Music Festival at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 18, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2117 Walnut St.
Performing are Anna Marsh, one of the premier players of the dulcian, which evolved into today’s bassoon but was softer, much sweeter and more supple; and Jeffrey Cohan, a flutist who regularly performs solo music for the Renaissance transverse flute. They team up with Renaissance lutenist John Lenti.
