Celebrating St John the Baptist and Midsummer at the same time - a very important festival in Scandinavia.
Festivities welcoming the warmth of the sun and long long days, with medieval ballads and sacred songs for St John the Baptist whose nativity coincides with the solstice. With lively dances and gentle lilting tunes, medieval stories, hymns and motets, this concert will be a varied and convivial celebration of the Scandinavian and indeed, pan-European connection of pagan festival with Christian Saint.
With music by Orlando Gibbons, Guillaume Dufay, Gilles de Bins dit Binchois, Orlando de Lasso, Heinrich Isaac and plenty of anonymous!
Free admission, retiring collection, refreshments afterwards.
