Mediaeval Baebes

Mediaeval Baebes

-

Cecil Sharp House, London

Pulling lyrics from mediaeval texts and setting them to original scores using mediaeval and classical instruments, whilst singing in an impressive array of long forgotten languages, the Mediaeval Baebes offer a unique musical beauty and outstanding talent.

Their choice of mediaeval texts are dramatic, obscure and dark in topic and remark upon the inevitability of death, the pointlessness of material possessions, the horror of unrequited love or the dangers of imbibing too much alcohol. Some themes are timeless! Twenty years later, these fair maidens have placed three albums into the top of the classical charts and their contribution to the BBC production of The Virgin Queen resulted in a deserved Ivor Novello Award for best television soundtrack and they can now be heard singing the tittle track to the hit TV series “Victoria”
