Orlando Consort

On Tuesday 13th September, the award-winning Orlando Consort will perform a concert of medieval songs newly discovered and edited by members of the Medieval Song Network, co-founded by Helen Deeming. The concert, which will take place at St Bartholomew the Great, West Smithfield, London at 6.30pm, will be preceded by a pre-concert talk given by Helen Deeming and Ardis Butterfield at 6.00pm. Along with new discoveries, some better-known items from English and Continental manuscripts of the twelfth to fifteenth centuries will be performed, ranging from monophonic conductus to four-part polyphony. Tickets are free, but please reserve in advance by contacting Valerie James (valerie.james@sas.ac.uk).
