Duo Maddalena: A Feast of Medieval Music
  • Brighton Fringe

In the beautiful, atmospheric church of St Nicholas, dating back to 1091, Duo Maddalena recreate the soundscape of medieval France, England and Spain. Music by Troubadours and Trobairitz such as the Comtessa Beatrice de Dia are intertwined with lute-songs by Binchois, up-beat dances by Machaut, a contemporary setting of a Trobairitz poem, and a range of serious, humorous and devotional anonymous pieces. We enjoy meeting audience members - do come and chat with us over a glass of wine in the interval!
