Distant Mirror: Feb. 1 - Medieval Pilgrimage Songs

Feb 1, 2019

Medieval pilgrimages were undertaken for many reasons: As penance to fulfill a promise made during illness, to escape prison, or, as Geoffrey Chaucer suggests, simply as a cure for Spring fever.  Pilgrimage sites were often places where miracles had occured or sacred relics were discovered.  On Friday's Distant Mirror hear the Toronto Consort perform from their cd The Way of the Pilgrim many of the songs that might have been sung en route to the holy places.  Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
