SummaryJoin Eric Mentzel and members of the Medieval Women’s Choir for a preview of their upcoming concert “The White Lily.”
DescriptionA perusal of medieval Marian texts yields a long list of honorific names for Mary, the mother of Jesus. She is the white lily, the shining star, the glorious mother of all. Songs and poems for Mary became so basic to medieval culture that they popped up everywhere: adopting the melodies of popular troubadour songs, inserted into preexisting liturgical music, and forming the basis of decidedly non-sacred love songs. This program of Marian music is a true cross-section of medieval music and a window into the medieval heart.
