The story of Merlin

21/12/2021 — Performance
The Ensemble Emrys presents its new program Cantus Merlini.
The story of Merlin set in medieval music and presented on stage for the first time.

Ensemble Emrys is composed by:
Isabella Shaw – voice, harp
Susanne Ansorg – vielle
Cristina Alís Raurich – portative organ
You can listen the première of this show on the 20th of May at Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert (France).
