The Orlando Consort

Food, Wine & Song Music and Food in Medieval and Early Renaissance Europe

In the battle to please the senses it is hard to imagine a more irresistible combination than good food and good music. Throughout history the two have gone hand in hand and from the period explored in this programme by The Orlando Consort (c.1250-1550), documents have survived testifying in detail to the most tremendous feasts and lavish entertainments. From French diners c.1300 to Burgundy, through Italy, Spain, Germany and England the majority of the pieces in this programme are about specific items of food in different contexts from cultivation to consumption.
