Fragments for the End of Time

In a season of triumphant returns, one of BEMF’s longest relationships has been with Sequentia, who first appeared at the 1989 Festival. This famed Medieval music ensemble will return to the BEMF stage as a duo of Benjamin Bagby and Norbert Rodenkirchen in an exploration of music based on apocalyptic texts from over one thousand years ago. This rare glimpse into an archaic musical world sees darkly theatrical songs mingle with folk melodies in a program of enthralling and exotic storytelling.
