Twelve Sibyls
The Madness of Prophecy Foretells
The Life of Christ

Prophetic texts ascribed to powerful women visionaries known as sibyls fascinated the early Christian church. One poem ascribed to the Erythraean Sibyl, for instance, was thought to foretell the coming of Christ. By the 16th century the number of sibyls was fixed at twelve, each associated with prophecies concerning the life of Christ. This concert presents music from the 11th to the 16th centuries highlighting each of the sibyls’ symbols and the Christian prophecies they represent.
