An intense experience awaits us as we journey to medieval France to witness the trial of Joan of Arc: a silent movie classic, accompanied by intricately beautiful live choral music from The Orlando Consort. Condemned unseen in France on its release, vilified by the Catholic authorities and even banned outright in England, Carl Theodor Dreyer’s film, La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc (1928), is widely recognised as a masterpiece. The award-winning Orlando Consort have crafted a stunning soundtrack to transport us back to the 15th century.
