Sequentia’s ensemble of female vocalists, directed by Benjamin Bagby and joined by the members of the young ensemble Ars Choralis Coeln, presents masterpieces of liturgical and devotional music from medieval German convents, including some pieces performed here for the first time since the Middle Ages. This anthology was produced to accompany the major exhibition ‘Krone und Schleier’ presented by the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland (Bonn) and the Ruhrlandmuseum Essen in the Spring of 2005. It was produced by the West German Radio and sold only through the museums.
