Music for a Norman Court, a concert featuring local group Trouvere will be staged this Saturday at St Mary’s Church, Richmond.
Music lovers will be able to follow the history of Norman Richmond in this programme of music from the 11th and 12th centuries.
The programme takes in music of the Saxon and Norman church, the songs of St Godric, music from Norman Sicily, and music of the troubadours and trouveres, mixed in with a touch of storytelling to set the music in its context.
Everything is performed on authentic period instruments – including medieval harps, the early medieval lute, the early psaltery, tuned bells, plus an amazing variety of flutes and whistles.
Trouvere are based in Richmondshire and have been researching, recording and recreating the music of the middle ages for over twenty years.
The period of the Normans and Saxons has been our research focus over the last couple of years, so we are delighted to bring it all together in this performance for Richmond 950.
Tickets are £7 for adults, £5 for concessions including refreshments.
