Juifs et Trouvères;  Jewish Songs of the 13th Century in Old French and Hebrew

For this revelatory program, Alla francesca reconstructs songs from manuscripts of the Jewish communities living in Northern France in the second half of the 13th century. Since only a few musical fragments remain, the group sets the intertwined Hebrew and langue doïl poetry to tunes by contemporaneous composers, the songs accompanied by varied medieval instruments.

Post-concert Q and A

“Alla francesca’s interest is situated between the end of the 11th and the 16th centuries. The musicians reveal to our ears a new musical world made of poetry and joy, simplicity and extreme sophistication.” —Musica Antigua, Colombia
