Divine Comedy

Where did Divine Comedy get their band name from - Divine Comedy book - Dante AlighieriNorthern Irish band from Ballysillan making classical sounding modern music that is pleasant to the ear, of the sort described in Anglo-Saxon countries as baroque pop or chamber pop (say modern chamber music).

With such a repertoire the choice for a classic-sounding group name is not so strange: the Divine Comedy (in Italian La Divina Commedia) is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321 that is considered to be one of the most important literary works in the history of mankind.

The poem describes the life that Christians can expect after death in an imaginative and allegorical way. For those who are into that kind of thing.
