SEQUENTIA: THE QUEEN AND THE TROUBADOUR
Friday August 7, 2015 | 7:30pm
Pre-concert chat at 6:45 PM with Benjamin Bagby and Matthew White
With students from the Vancouver Early Music Summer Programme
Inspired by the stories of ‘courts of love’ presided over by twelfth-century noblewomen such as Eleanor of Aquitaine, this programme presents songs, stories and dances from the love-drenched world of the troubadours and minstrels of medieval Europe. Sequentia is joined on stage by a group of dynamic young professional singers and instrumentalists, participants in the legendary Vancouver summer course in medieval music.
Due to the unique nature of this venture, the exact programme will not be available until a few days before the performance. As soon as the final programme is determined it will be available here and as a programme insert at the concert itself. Translations of the sung texts will be provided in video projections.
