ENSEMBLE PEREGRINA
Benjamin Bagby featured in new recording of medieval Danish song





In 2017 Benjamin joined the ensemble Peregrina (Basel), under the direction of its founder Agnieszka Budzinska-Bennett, in a recording project focused on medieval music from the Baltic area: Mare Balticum, vol. 1: Music in Medieval Denmark. It has recently been issued on the Tacet label, with excellent reviews so far. Many congratulations to Agnieszka and her colleagues!


One review of the CD has this to say about Benjamin's contribution:

“...and Benjamin Bagby, as scholar and interpreter one of the great masters of this repertoire, doesn't need to be asked twice: he is a magnificent storyteller and brings to this project his harmonically-rounded baritone in all its glory, with incredible stature and authority. Playfully and full of life, he animates the rigid forms of regular textual structures – or: he pulverises them, according to the perspective. As an example of this last observation: he breathes life into the almost 15-minute long textual mass of the Michael Beheim ballad 'Von meiner mervart'... “

The project Mare Balticum aims to present the medieval musical heritage of the Baltic Sea region in the 12th-15th centuries. It consists of four musical programs, prepared in great detail, and employing the newest musicological, philological, historical and organological research. Each of these programs presents the local character of a different coastal region of Balticum, its specific historical and cultural situation, its most important saints and rulers, and the Christian roots of the relevant country. They provide an insight into the local literature and musical repertories of medieval Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany, and Poland; both Latin and the vernacular are represented, as well as the diversity of historical musical instruments used in those regions at the time. The project as a whole, however, aims to show something of the strong political and cultural connections between those medieval countries, their development over time, and the similarities between them, all of which are essential to our understanding of the common identity and history of Balticum, as is reflected to us through its centuries of music. (Agnieszka Budzinska-Bennett) As special guest we welcome Benjamin Bagby.
