Magdalena - Medieval Songs for Mary Magdalena - Joglaresa

£15.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Belinda Sykes and Joglaresa, 2003.

Britian's top multicultural medieval band, Joglaresa, whose explorations of medieval and renaissance repertoire from western European, Arabic and Sephardic traditions have won them widespread critical acclaim, present a portrait in song of Mary Magdalena. Director Belinda Sykes' ensemble of English, Irish and Bulgarian singers, and band of fiddle, harp and hurdy gurdy, perform 14th century Italian lauda, Latin hymns and chants extending as far back as 9th century Byzantium, including numerous modern premiere performances.

Joglaresa, whose name derives from wandering minstrels from the South of France, is unique in performing medieval music with prestigious artists drawn from the improvisational spheres of jazz and world music in addition to those of classical music. Their infectious enthusiasm, combined with peerless skill and musicianship, produces programmes that are lively, expressive, full of Mediterranean passion and colour, poignant, spontaneous and highly improvisational.
