The 2014 Festival was a great success and we are very grateful to all the musicians, festival team, audience members, Festival Friends, NCEM Patrons and supporters for all their hard work and brilliant music making!  A selection of photographs from the 2014 festival will be posted shortly.
The 2015 festival takes as its starting point the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt and features cross-currents between France and England from the Middle Ages through to the Baroque.
Highlights include a newly constructed medieval soundscape for Carl Theodor Dreyer's 1928 silent masterpiece La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc presented by The Orlando Consort; Andrew Parrott's Taverner Consort in a glorious programme of music reflecting the Field of the Cloth of Gold, The Clerks' Group presenting Cry God for Harry and the Early Opera Company in a programme of Purcell and Charpentier.  The festival finishes with the 2015 International Young Artists Competition when we welcome the next generation of early music performers to York.  For details of how to apply to take part in the competition, click here
