This performance is generously supported by Kathleen P. Martin.
The Orlando Consort, formed in 1988 by the Early Music Network of Great Britain, rapidly achieved a reputation as one of Europe’s most expert and consistently challenging groups performing repertoire from the years 1050 to 1550. Their work successfully combines captivating entertainment and fresh scholarly insight; the unique imagination and originality of their programming together with their superb vocal skills has marked the Consort out as the outstanding leaders of their field.
Carl Theodor Dreyer's silent masterpiece, The Passion of Joan of Arc, features gorgeous black and white images that will fuse with a soundscape of music from the film’s early 15th century setting. The epic story of heroism and madness explores how angels were made manifest to Joan in a paradox of a silent movie about a woman inspired by the sound of voices.
