 Those seeking a lyrical re­pose from the bustle of the Parisian art world should head to France’s National Museum of the Renaissance at the Château d’Écouen for an exhibition devoted to mu­sic of the sixteenth century. Featuring historic instru­ments, treatises, paintings, drawings, and objects, the show elucidates the crucial roles of both sacred and pro­fane music in this period. It is the first to focus on this time period, but it is only the latest in a growing number of exhi­bitions to examine the links between music and art.
