CONCERT DESCRIPTION

CALL ME MARIE is a new program based on the fables told by a 12th-century woman who pen-named herself “Marie de France.” Created and performed in collaboration with the Grammy-nominated duo Chapter House, this English-language version of her tales told by master storyteller Sarah Walker is sure to delight children and adults alike.

Alkemie & Chapter House will regale listeners with tales of love, magic, and cautionary wisdom, punctuated by music from the court of Eleanor of Aquitaine as well as from Harley Ms. 978, a 13th-century English source of Marie's fables as well as the only extant version of the famous round "Sumer Is Icumen In."

Get to know our Grammy-nominated collaborators, Sarah & Peter Walker in this clip from their Olde English Advent Series.
