THE COUNCIL OF CONSTANCE
A musical summit meeting The Council of Constance was probably the most important world event of the early 15th century, when sacred and secular authorities met to resolve the problem of having three rival popes. Kings, cardinals, nobles and bishops descended on the south-west German city, bringing their courts, chapels and musicians with them, including medieval ‘loud bands’ of reeds, brass and percussion. This concert presents music by some of the international group of composers who met there, including Du Fay, Wolkenstein and Antonio Zachara de Teramo.
