“Pure, simple and stunning” (the Denver Post) describes the four rarified voices of Anonymous 4. The acclaimed quartet returns to Rockefeller Chapel with a program of 13th century motets from the Montpellier Codex. Marie & Marion examines fin amours – images, metaphors, turns of phrase – as applied to both earthly love (Marion) and devotion to the Virgin Mary. It summarizes the ethos of an entire age in Western civilization, wrapped in music of endless variety and exotic beauty.
