Anne Azema (voice and hurdy-gurdy) and Shira Kammen (vielle and harp), present “Leale Amie,” an exploration of the spirit and power of women through songs and poems of medieval France. They evoke archetypal symbols of the feminine as well as images of women amid the flow of their lives and loves. Passion, joy, sorrow, and humor inform these treasures – eight centuries old, yet timeless. Aristocratic pieces, including trouvere songs by Count Thibaut de Champagne (1201-53), rub shoulders with others of a popular nature, creating an intimate yet emotionally moving experience.
