A 14th-Century Salmagundi

Salmagundi: a savory dish composed of chopped meats, seafood, eggs, vegetables, and condiments; a mixture or hodgepodge; an assemblage of miscellaneous components.

Blue Heron’s Salmagundi is a pleasing miscellany of music composed c. 1300-1400, a delightful salad of ingredients gathered from our storehouse of French and Italian songs, including virtuosic music by Guillaume de Machaut, Francesco Landini, and Jacob Senleches. Seven vocal soloists are featured along with medieval fiddles, harp, and lute.
