Through scholarly detective work the members of Sequentia, together with Sam Barrett, a Cambridge eminence in the medieval melodic tradition linked to Boethius’s work, have been able to produce a convincing reconstruction of this lost repertory. Barrett himself signs the main booklet essay and provides some fascinating insights therein.
Sequentia are among the world’s most respected and innovative ensembles for medieval music. Under the direction of Benjamin Bagby, Sequentia can look back on more than 40 years of international concert tours, a comprehensive discography of more than 30 recordings spanning the entire Middle Ages, film and television productions of medieval music drama and a new generation of young performers trained in professional courses given by members of the ensemble.
Sequentia were co-founded by Bagby and the late Barbara Thornton during their final years as students at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and have maintained a solid link with the Swiss institution since then. Their appearance in the collection that the SCB publishes in co-production with Glossa was an eagerly expected one.
