It’s been 25 years since The Orlando Consort first began sharing their love of medieval and Renaissance repertoire with audiences around the globe. Miller raises a glass to these ambassadors of early music with a program focused on Machaut’s extraordinary Le voir dit, the improbable (and possibly autobiographical) love story of an aging poet and his young admirer, widely considered one of the great works of the Middle Ages. In the second half of the program, the quartet traverses other favorites from their repertoire, including works by Dufay, Ockeghem, and Josquin.
