Today is the feast day of St Bridget of Sweden, who founded the Order of the Most Holy Saviour.

I can report with confidence that the group thought several of motets we tried yesterday for the first time are truly wonderful, including some "new" Ferrarese repertoire by Maistre Jhan and Leonora d'Este.
Maistre Jhan = absolute banger.

The Nun's Story shows the religious ideal, alongside the lurid details of the Sisters work in asylums &brutal colonial outposts. "Her new madhouse world hidden away in a corner of Belgium might have been ... on another continent, like the Congo ..."
Happy to announce that another psalter (HAAB, Fol 35) joined the Medingen corpus! Check out the digitial facisimile of the
#manuscript via the Medingen blog (sigle WE)! It has a #nuntastic depiction of the Medingen cloister patron (118v)! @DirektorHAAB
