10.22.16 City of Fools: Medieval Songs of Rule and Misrule

First Church in Boston, 8:00 pm

Boston Camerata in collaboration with Longy School of Music of Bard College

Shortly before an important American election, this new program of songs and poems from the Middle Ages evokes the age-old themes of justice and corruption in the public sphere. Minstrel songs from medieval France, Provençe, and Germany, amazingly contemporary in their language, provide an amusing and sharply-etched perspective on our current travails. The concert will feature sections from the Play of Daniel, Carmina Burana, and Roman de Fauvel; works by gifted musician-poets Philippe le Chancelier, Bertran de Born, and Thibault de Champagne; and a very American ending!

First Church in Boston is located at 66 Marlborough Street, Boston, MA 02116.
