“Our food is scanty, our garments rough; our drink is from the stream” – Abbot Aelred, 1147
Rievaulx Abbey, Yorkshire, 12th century
Minstrels and merry makers descended on Bogner’s of Penticton at the restaurant’s first annual Mid-Winter Medieval Feast!
It was a delight to introduce Beatriz de Dia’s A Chantar, one of the only remaining works by a trobairitz, female equivalent of a troubadour, from the 12th century.
As well, the audience was treated to O Eterne Deus, Hildegarde von Bingen, 12th century abbess and composer… and works by Monteverdi, Thomas Morley and more!
