Grantham Music Club's final concert features early music ensemble
Grantham Music Club's final concert of the season features 'Joglaresa' at the King's School main hall on Wednesday (March 27).
Joglaresa, directed by Belinda Sykes, is an early music ensemble of intertwining female voices accompanied by harp, fidel, dulcimer and percussion.
They have performed in London and both nationally and internationally, and will bring the season to an end by presenting their programme entitled Love in the Time of Unicorns – Secrets and Desires in Medieval Song.
Imagine the world of the Middle Ages . . . this programme lives up to all your medieval fantasies: knights, ladies, lovers, nightingales, minstrels, and unicorns.
Some of the most beautiful medieval melodies are to be found in the courtly, love-drenched world of the trouvères. Fin amors had so affected the culture and imagination of Europe throughout the last thousand years that C.S. Lewis described it as a 'revolution' compared to which 'the Renaissance is a mere ripple on the surface of literature'.
With four intertwining female voices, this programme will sound heavenly.
Come to this, the club's final concert of this season, to find out more.
The concert, sponsored by Escritt Barrell Golding, begins at 7.30pm.
All concerts are open to non-members. Tickets are £12 (students free) at the door or in advance from Guildhall Arts Centre, call 01476 406158 or visit www.guildhallartscentre.com
