Douce dame: Women and the Ars Nova
With the assistance of Yale professor Anna Zayaruznaya, Elm City Consort will dig beneath the familiar tropes of courtly love poetry to examine the real and imagined lives of 14th-century women through the music of Guillaume de Machaut and Phillipe de Vitry and the words of Christine de Pizan.
