Mediaeval Baebes – December Tour

Wed 4 December 19:30 - 22:00

Established as one of the most successful female-led, early music and folk ensembles in Europe; lush, ethereal harmonies will transport the listener through a myriad of ancient and forgotten languages.

The Mediaeval Baebes was conceptualised and formed in 1996 by musical director, composer and producer Katharine Blake. The group has released 10 studio albums, won an Ivor Novella Award for their performance in the BBC serialisation ‘The Virgin Queen’, and received two Emmy nominations and a Royal Television Society award as the featured artist alongside composer Martin Phipps for the theme tune of ITV’s hit ‘Victoria’.

Katharine Blake is known for her unique choral writing style, sourcing lyrics from mediaeval and romantic texts which she sets to original scores, as well as reinventing traditional and folk songs, often accompanied by the Mediaeval Baebes’ plethora of mediaeval and folk instruments. The more familiar material, such as their classic anthology of Christmas Carols ‘Of Kings and Angels’ offers a refreshing and exotic twist to well-known classics.
