Les Délices presents: Machaut's Lai of the Fountain
Experience the intriguing beauty of Machaut’s medieval masterpiece when Les Délices joins forces with Boston’s Blue Heron.
Guillaume de Machaut’s flowing melodies become brilliant rainbows when refracted into three-voice canons in his Lai of the Fountain. Works by Johannes Ciconia and others aid our exploration of the Medieval garden’s subtle beauty in this collaboration with Blue Heron.
