In the Gothic splendor of Washington National Cathedral, London’s famed Orlando Consort joins Folger Consort in a concert of English medieval music drawn from the extraordinary 15th-century Old Hall Manuscript. Hear sublime sacred vocal works in a perfect setting along with dances and country tunes. With guest instrumentalist Mary Springfels (strings) and Daniel Meyers (winds) and the Orlando Consort.

"The sheer skill of the Orlando Consort leaves one speechless: everything is immaculately tuned, balanced and phrased; absolutely nothing seems to impede the flow of the music." —Gramophone Magazine
