The Orlando Consort presents a programme of beguiling, sophisticated and virtuosic music by two of the most influential composers in all of western classical music. Guillaume de Machaut’s (d.1377) songs are remarkable for their enchanting melodies supported by ever-surprising harmonies - that Machaut wrote his own stunning poetry only adds to his outstanding achievement. The career of Guillaume Dufay (d.1474) spanned the medieval and renaissance ages. Not simply the supreme master of the old, his work dictated the course of composition for many future generations. The concert finishes at approximately 9.10pm
