This is Sequentia’s first recording, released four years after the ensemble was founded and had firmly established its repertoire focus and sound. The ensemble’s co-founders Barbara Thornton and Benjamin Bagby are joined here by Margriet Tindemans (medieval fiddle) and Crawford Young (medieval lute) in an ambitious – and unheard-of at that time – programme consisting of only five large-scale lais (instrumental and vocal), showing their relationship to the sequence form which was the inspiration for the name ‘Sequentia’.
