Wonderful venue, small and intimate. The performers were lively and talented and the subject and music were both facinating and unique. Interesting how the manuscripts were found, reconstructed and performed; one really had a sense of being back in the 13th century.
Treating love in all its guises, the songs of the troubadours and lively dances for fiddles, harps, citole, flutes, and percussion celebrate the joy of love requited.
With soprano Johana Arnold, instrumentalists Robert Eisenstein, Christopher Kendall, and other guests
