Let us take you on a journey through medieval Europe, stopping to taste mouthwatering musical delights from each region. Colourful miracle stories from Spain, heart-rending love songs from France, philosophical musings from Germany and festive mirth from England combine with rumbustious Italian dances to create a feast of musical flavours to suit every palate.
Faye Newton and Hazel Brooks formed Duo Trobairitz to explore the courtly song repertoire of the troubadours and trouvères, especially suited to their combination of voice and vielle (an early violin). Faye and Hazel’s fascination with the medieval period has inspired them to interpret medieval music in a way that is true to its historical roots whilst being entertaining and meaningful for a modern-day audience. The duo has been praised for its ‘glorious’ and ‘beautifully rich’ interpretations (Early Music Review).
