The Explorer Learning Series returns April 29th for The Cantrix: Evidence of Women’s Voices in the Middle Ages. While we can never have a complete picture of any singing tradition from the Middle Ages, there are vivid pieces of evidence that can help us imagine what the act of singing, and particularly women’s singing, might have been like centuries ago. At courts, in convents, and in the countryside, women had music of their own, reflecting their particular relationships to the world around them. Join Artistic Associate Katherine Hill, herself a modern-day cantrix, for an all-new Explorer Learning Series session that will draw together threads of evidence, in the form of written word, images, and recordings, to create a colourful tapestry of human artistry, creativity and intellect as it might have been in the Middle Ages.
