The Orlando Consort anniversary celebration begins with the chansons from Guillaume de Machaut's master work Le Voir Dit — a story of the extraordinary epistolary exchange between the aging poet and his young female admirer, Peronne. Next, the British male vocal quartet offers up an indulgent review of the Consort's favorite 15th-century composers.

Featuring some of the finest examples of late medieval composition, the group showcases the sacred works of Dunstaple, Ockeghem, Compère, Josquin and many others featured in their extensive recordings. Enjoy an evening of captivating entertainment and fresh scholarly insight. The unique imagination and originality of their programming combined with their superb vocal skills has marked The Orlando Consort one of Britain's most important chamber music ensembles.

A pre-concert talk with ensemble members begins at 6:45 p.m.
