Join early music group Joglaresa at Canterbury Cathedral for a romp through the Middle Ages – where the knights are villainous, the dancers seductive, and even the lullabies are groovy. The programme includes medieval ‘hits’ such as Machaut’s Douce Dame and the anonymous Orientis Partibus, alongside many lesser-known pieces that you’ll wish you’d always known – some of medieval Europe’s ‘funkiest’ tunes (it wasn’t all plainchant you know)!
Obviously, Joglaresa draw upon the 1270’s rather than the 1970’s. Any reference to the 1970’s is entirely… coincidental intentional.
Expect a variety of Joglaresa favourites and new repertoire including The Lascivious Knight (Je chevauchoie l’autrier), The Knight who Got Castrated by the Virgin Mary (Sempr’ acha Santa Maria), plus many more arrangements of medieval song by modern minstrels Sianed Jones, Elisabeth Flett and Belinda Sykes. Join us for an evening of unmatched energy and cheer.
