Event description

Description

Let us take you on a journey through medieval Europe, stopping to sample the most gourmet musical delights from each country. Colourful miracle stories from Spain, heart-rending love songs from France, philosophical musings from Germany and festive mirth from England combine with rumbustious Italian dances to create a feast of musical flavours to suit every palate.

Faye Newton and Hazel Brooks met at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London where they discovered a shared passion for medieval music and poetry. In the year 2000 they formed ‘duo Trobairitz’ to explore the courtly song repertoire of the troubadours and trouvères, which is especially appropriate to their combination of voice and vielle. Faye and Hazel are both fascinated by the medieval period and thrive on the challenge of interpreting medieval music in a way that is true to its historical roots whilst being entertaining and meaningful for a modern-day audience. They enjoy the creative process of taking a melody and a text and, through a combination of scholarship and imagination, bringing the meaning and emotion of the text to life. The duo has been praised for its ‘glorious’ and ‘beautifully rich’ interpretations (Early Music Review), and aspires to take the performance of medieval music to the highest artistic plane.

Tewkesbury's Medieval Festival - commemorating the 1471 Battle of Tewkesbury - takes place during the weekend of 14 - 15 July, so there's lots more to see and do!
