York Early Music Festival 2010: Ensemble Lucidarium

Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Sunday 26 September 2010

Catherine Bott presents music for a Jewish wedding performed by Ensemble Lucidarium from the 2010 York Early Music Festival.

In order to reflect the festival theme of "music and marriage", the Italian based medieval and renaissance group Ensemble Lucidarium devised and performed an enchanting programme of early music written to celebrate and compliment a typical renaissance Jewish wedding service, with songs and dances reflecting the different aspects of the ceremony.
