After a sell out performance in April, Sequentia will be returning to Cambridge on 2 July for a second performance of the newly reconstructed melodies of Boethius’ ‘Consolation of Philosophy’. Tickets are available here.
The public concert forms part of a scholarly conference: ‘Medieval Latin Song from c. 800 to c. 1200’ taking place at Pembroke College on 2 July. This one-day interdisciplinary conference is dedicated to Latin song not routinely performed in the liturgy from the Carolingian era through to the New Song repertories recorded from c. 1100 onwards. The opening address is given by Professor C. Stephen Jaeger and the concluding paper by Professor David Ganz. Invited papers will be given by scholars of medieval music based at the Universities of Cambridge and Würzburg, including Professor Susan Rankin and Drs Elaine Stratton Hild, David Catalunya and Konstantin Voigt. A full list of papers is available here and registration is available here.
