Music: 'Music for the Dancing Plagues'
Yes, there really were Flagellants, so-called "extreme penitents" who sang and whipped themselves as they processed through towns hit by the Black Death in the 1300s. The Canconier ensemble will perform some of these songs and other music devoted to medieval and Renaissance plagues at an 8 p.m. concert tomorrow, March 8, at First Lutheran Church, 600 Homer Ave., Palo Alto. Tickets are $35 general and $30 for seniors. Go to sfems.org.
