Conductus Latin Song from the 12th and 13th Centuries
 
CONCERT BY CANDLELIGHT
 
Around 1200 a new musical and poetic movement flourished in Europe: specially created Latin songs that celebrated great historical events or commented wittily on the politics and society of its age were set to newly-composed melodies and elaborated with experimental harmonies, matching the revolution in soaring gothic architecture of the time. This programme explores this subtle artistic repertory in the evocative medieval surroundings of All Saints'' Church, performed by artists who have long been leading exponents of medieval song.
 
This performance has developed out of a research project at the University of Southampton funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council directed by Mark Everist. The concert also marks the launch of a series of associated recordings made at the NCEM by Hyperion Records and the premiere of Michael Lynch's film, supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England that intertwines the music with visual images from the period.
 
Seating is unreserved.
