Robert Olsen’s review
Anonymous 4 and the Folger Consort are world-class musicians, and two pick-up instrumentalists performed well. The long program -- equally divided between 12th century music of Hildegard von Bingen and 13th century music associated with the Cathedral of Notre Dame -- was interesting, and the musicians' program notes were exceptional. Unfortunately, the acoustics of the National Cathedral were not good, judging at least from our seats to the side of and slightly behind the musicians. The sound sailed up and got lost in the belfry (or whatever one calls the space above the safety netting and below the sky).
