Love in Time of Unicorns - Secrets & Desires in Medieval Song
Venue: The Hall of the King’s School
JOGLARESA, directed by Belinda Sykes, is an early music ensemble of intertwining female voices accompanied by harp, fidel, dulcimer and percussion. They have performed in London and both nationally and internationally, and will bring the season to an end by presenting their programme entitled Love in the Time of Unicorns.
Imagine the world of the Middle Ages... this programme lives up to all your medieval fantasies: knights, ladies, lovers, nightingales, minstrels, and unicorns. Some of the most beautiful medieval melodies are to be found in the courtly love-drenched world of the trouvères - Fin amors had so affected the culture and imagination of Europe throughout the last thousand years that C.S. Lewis described it as a 'revolution' compared to which 'the Renaissance is a mere ripple on the surface of literature.'
With four intertwining female voices accompanied by harp, fidel, dulcimer and percussion, this programme will sound heavenly. Come to this, our final concert of this season, to find out more!
