The Consolation of Song
Sat 2 July 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
After their sell-out performance in April Benjamin Bagby and Sequentia return to Cambridge to present songs from Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy. The melodies have been reconstructed from a rediscovered leaf of the 11th-century ‘Cambridge Songs Manuscript’ for the first time in 1000 years as part of a long term collaborative project with Dr Sam Barrett of the Faculty of Music at the University of Cambridge.
There will be a pre-concert talk from 7pm-7.30pm by Dr Sam Barrett on the reconstruction process.
