BLONDEL MEDIEVAL & RENAISSANCE WINDBAND: OF ARMS AND A WOMAN ALBUM PRE-LAUNCH
29th August 2018

This gig is for a seated audience

Blondel prepare to launch their album "Of Arms and a Woman", a chronicle of love, loss, chivalry and memory, which contains works by Dufay, Binchois, Bedyngham, Morton, Ciconia, Landini and Machaut performed on shawms, slide trumpet, recorders, sackbut, bagpipes and percussion.

Blondel gives engaging and spirited performances of Medieval and Renaissance wind music. It is easy to imagine how the bold tones of a shawm band cut across the hustle and bustle of dance and banquet halls, or even a city square. More surprising to modern ears is the joyful and sophisticated beauty that results from this uniquely blended sound.

Blondel’s past performances include concerts in the Cheltenham Festival (broadcast live by the BBC) Cambridge Early Music, King’s Lynn Festival, Beaminster Festival, Leeds International Medieval Congress, the Wimbledon International Music Festival and Colchester Early Music. The Agincourt600 Committee commissioned them to record a CD based around the life of Henry V, which is available as free download from:
