The Theatre of Love
The search to pair verse with music has been one of mankind's greatest aspirations since the oldest known written sources. Scholars of classical literature tell us unequivocally that the epic verse of Homer's tales was not written to be read in private - but to be performed in public. And not only performed - it was sung rhythmically to music. The potent catalyst of music lifts the verse above the everyday cares of men, and transmutes it into something imbued with inner meaning and resonance. It's no exaggeration to say that Martin Cooke and his Theatre of Love project uphold that ancient, noble, and even partially forgotten tradition - restoring it to vigorous life, and filling our own lives with forgotten shades of meaning in the process.
