Sequentia

Home > Music at Amherst Chamber Series 2014 > Sequentia

Event Information
One of the world’s most respected and innovative ensembles for medieval music, Sequentia is directed by the legendary performer and teacher Benjamin Bagby. At Amherst, Bagby and Norbert Rodenkirchen present Fragments for the End of Time. Based on meticulous research and intensive rehearsal, Sequentia’s virtuosic performances are surprising in their immediacy. They create a timeless emotional connection to our own past musical cultures.
The instruments used in this concert include reconstructions of Germanic harps (based on 7th century instruments from Oberflacht, near Stuttgart), an early medieval triangular harp, and copies of medieval transverse flutes (including a flute made from a swan’s bone, based on an 11th century instrument unearthed near Speyer).
 
If I ever go time-traveling to the Middle Ages, I want Sequentia as my guide ’ –The Boston Musical Intelligencer
