Using songs of Gilles Binchois and John Bedyngham, along with their associated parody Masses—and new adaptations of poetry by Christine de Pizan — this program tells a late-medieval transition story, which is also a story of the progress of love, sacred and profane.
But Lady Fortune came to me
and as I slept one evening she
touched every member. I awoke
a body changed and when I spoke
it was my lover’s voice that came
from out my throat. I changed my name,
who was Christina Christian am,
a man of woman, of Pizan.
