Soundtrack devised and developed by Donald Greig

A stunning audio and visual experience. One of the UK’s leading vocal ensembles, the Orlando Consort, performs a live sound track to a lm which was condemned (unseen) in France on its release, vilified by the Catholic authorities and even banned outright in England - Carl Theodor Dreyer’s La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc. The 1928 film is now widely recognised as a silent masterpiece, regularly appearing in lists of the top ten greatest films ever made.

Inspired by Dreyer’s vision, the award winning Orlando Consort presents an entirely new, carefully crafted soundtrack of music from the era in which the film is set. The intricate beauty of 15th century works by Binchois and Dufay, together with animated motets and haunting plainsong amplify the poignant depiction of medieval France and provide a highly evocative accompaniment to a landmark film.

Generously supported by the Franks Family
