It’s a strange and brilliant idea: construct a soundtrack for Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1927 film La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc with music composed in France during Joan of Arc’s lifetime. To complement the film, the Orlando Consort has selected a varied mix of sacred songs by largely unknown composers. This was a transitional moment during the Hundred Years War, where the extreme complexity of the Ars Nova had fallen out of favor for the clarity of chanson. Two of the most famous composers of the era—Dufay and Binchois—appear with some early chansons. —Dan Ruccia
