Galileo and his Revolutions




Galileo's Daughters


Sarah Pillow, soprano & Mary-Anne Ballard, viola da gamba


with guests Ronn McFarlane, lute; author Dava Sobel & Marc Wagnon, video artist


A moving and compelling account of a remarkable moment in the history of science, human thought and music, Perpetual Motion ties together the groundbreaking repertoire of Galileo’s day, narration by acclaimed best-selling science writer Dava Sobel, (author of Galileo's Daughter) and high-definition images of Earth and the cosmos. 


Sobel narrates the story of coinciding revolutions in science and music in the 17th century, as breathtaking images of Earth and the heavens complement virtuoso performances. Together they present a link to the past and bring to light the exquisite beauty of our world.
