The Art of Sequentia

Sequentia was founded by Benjamin Bagby and the late Barbara Thornton, and the ensemble has now been a force in the medieval music world for over forty years. We’ll dive into their extensive discography and hear selections from Dante & the Troubadours, Lost Songs of a Rhineland Harper, Aquitania, and their recordings of the complete works of Hildegard von Bingen. All selections by Sequentia.
