Musicians and Murals!

Faronel and mural2Our Music and Murals concert in the picturesque setting of West Somerton church in Norfolk was geared towards celebrating the restoration of the church and its magnificent murals with music appropriate to the various periods of the building’s construction. From the 13th century, when the church was first constructed, we played some early dances and English songs; from the 14th century, when the murals were painted, we included music by Machaut, Landini, the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat and some French Ballades.

Faronel processionWe finished the concert with English music of the early 15th century contemporary with the beautiful chancel.

Our thanks go to the Rev. Selwyn Tillett and his parishioners who made us so welcome during our visit.
