Description

Founder's Day Concert
Orlando Consort
Superb performances and impeccable scholarship have won international renown for this exceptional English vocal quartet, masters of Medieval and Renaissance vocal music. On Founder’s Day, the Consort brings to life one of the Library’s rarest manuscript treasures: our Laborde Chansonnier is a magnificent, elaborately illuminated collection of elegant songs: enchanting entertainment for courtly audiences in 15th century France.
