Tales from Canterbury


Violin (detail)

Tales from Canterbury
In the Elizabethan Theatre
October 6 - 8, 2006

The music of medieval England is as boisterous and beautiful as Chaucer's immortal tales of pilgrimage. Full of cheerful disregard for the strict conventions of continental composition, the 11th- and 12th-century pieces include the sweet and sublime Angelus ad Virginem, music honoring St. Thomas of Canterbury, and other medieval marvels.
