Le Roman de Fauvel
The Roman de Fauvel is a satirical French poem comprised of fascinating and immensely varied monophonic and polyphonic music and texts. Written in Paris in 1314, the piece serves as an allegorical criticism of church and state, using the metaphor of a donkey (Fauvel) who becomes the ruler of his master's house. The poem, though banned at the time for being seditious and heretical, was wildly successful and still copied into the 15th century. The compositions range from gorgeous love songs to edgy polyphony of the Ars Nova.
All in the fabulous wooden acoustic of St. Marks Parish Hall. There will, of course, be snax.
