The medieval concept of the Florilegium, or “gathering of flowers,” referred to the process of picking and choosing passages from important early writings and gathering them together in a new arrangement or anthology. Likewise, in this program, Trobár plucks excerpts from four medieval stories with music, two allegories, a pastoral comedy, and a political satire, exploring the ways that the music embellishes and amplifies the stories, heightening the drama or offering moments of reflection. With music by Hildegard von Bingen, Adam de la Halle, and others, alongside images from the manuscripts, and presented by a mix of voices and instruments, including guest artist Nathan Dougherty, come enjoy our bouquet of medieval storytelling!
