Orlando Consort

 

Medieval and Renaissance Musical Representations of Gardens And Horticulture
Musiche di Machaut, Ciconia, Desprez, Agricola, Brumel, Gombert

The Orlando Consort vocal quartette has set out a fascinating program illustrating the popularity of metaphors involving flowers and other plants in divine and earthly love, between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. 
In those 300 years many of the great European composers used these themes.
The Consort sings poetic texts describing pleasure gardens, with aromatic herbs, vegetable plots, orchards, and forbidden fruits, in a series that keeps the listener’s attention. The program is artfully planned to shift from motets to French and English songs of the 13th century to Flemish compositions from the early 1500s, with a dutiful tribute to the five centuries since the death of Josquin Deprez.
The setting of the Sacro Monte of Ghiffa,with its impressive architecture and stunning landscape, makes this one of the most fascinating appointments in the Festival, joyously combining music with art and nature.
