Saskatoon RMT’s “Medieval-Renaissance Feast & Festivity” was a very memorable evening, and an opportunity to revisit instruments and musique of Medieval times. We we enthralled by Weldon Gray of Graylore Lutes and his vast collection of medieval instruments; dined in 15th Century style to the music of Saskatoon’s medieval troubador group, Troubadors Du Bois; viewed displays of medieval art and illuminations thanks to the U of S’s Museum of Anthropology; and learned about the music of Orlande de Lassus through the words of Gerard Weber and the choral voices of Voci Strane.
Many thanks to the industrious and creative team who presented to Saskatoon a musical event like none other, on January 30th at Emmanual Church. Our thanks to organizers Michael Harris, Christina Tong, Bridget Olver, and Noreen Wensley. Bravo!
