The Bright Maiden, the Linden Tree, and the Vagabond: Music of Medieval Germany 

A concert in which Cançonièr explores the rich array of medieval German works, including the vibrant repertoire of the minnesingers (summer songs, dances), the earthy and raucous songs of the original Carmina Burana (written by the Goliards, scandalous university students who celebrated life, drinking, and carousing), the ecstatic music of Hildegard of Bingen, and the works of Oswald von Wolkenstein, Conrad Paumann, and their contemporaries.
