When Cupid and Death spend the night in the same inn, their bow and arrow are switched, with com­plete chaos as a result. That is the plot of Matthew Locke and Christopher Gibbons’ masque Cupid and Death from 1653, one of the most intrigu­ing 17th-cen­tu­ry dra­mas and the only masque from that peri­od whose com­plete score has been preserved.
