Montreal Medieval Festival 2014
BREAKFAST ON THE LAWN
During the 2014 edition of the Montreal Medieval Festival, we presented 3 concerts:
Déjeuner sur l'herbe
Songs of nature and dawn in times of the Troubadours
This program assembles a few troubadours, trouvères, and minnesänger around a Picnic. We savour songs about dawn, spring, nature, as well as excerpts from the famous Carmina Burana. The bird songs announce the end of winter, lovers do what lovers do, and the wine flows...
When the nightingale sings night and day with his companion, I am with my beautiful lover underneath the flower, until the nightwatch cries, "Lovers awake! I see the sun rising and the day is clear."
Femke Bergsma: voive, flutes, medieval fiddle
Jean-Philippe Reny: medieval lute, oud, percussions
