The Binchois Consort presents a celebration of the Virgin Mary in sound and stone on ‘The Lily and the Rose.’ Following the success of its predecessor, ‘Music for the 100 Years’ War,’ this release further explores the artistic parallels between music and alabaster sculpture in late medieval England. Through a shared exploration in partnership with museums, curators, scholars, artists and musicians, the ensemble has brought together traditions of English late-medieval alabaster carving and polyphonic singing from a period of more than a century (c. 1380 — c. 1520).
