About the Program
The City of Ladies
Featuring Servir Antico (Belgium), directed by Catalina Vicens
This concert film, recorded in the medieval chapel of Notre-Dame-à-la-rose in Belgium, is a musical praise of women, featuring composers of 15-century Burgundy and France. Texts by revolutionary writer Christine de Pizan (1364–ca. 1430) and forward-thinking poet Martin Le Franc (ca. 1410–1460) provide a framework for the program. Christine de Pizan was harshly criticized for questioning the place, role, and society’s centuries-old treatment of women, and Martin, unlike most other men, championed her cause and brought awareness to the importance of women as active and multifaceted citizens in history.
This concert includes narrative and commentary by Catalina Vicens, director of Server Antico.
