Ma fin est mon commencement

Consort of 1's Lizzie Gutteridge brings more of her live-looped early music to the Colchester Early Music series with a programme featuring some of the most fascinating and complex music of the 14th century, with compositional techniques we commonly associate with 20th century modernism: canons, inversions, prolation, hockets and isorhythm... The results are remarkably beautiful and the effect often quite serene. This music is very well suited to the live-looping set-up which allows us to hear the individual layers of each piece as they slot together. For variety's sake there'll also be a few of the 14th century's catchiest tunes!
