Falling Through Time
All the colour and mystique of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance come alive with a presentation that is rich in music and drama.
All the colour and mystique of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance come alive with a presentation that is rich in music and drama. From 12th century troubadour songs through beautiful songs by Machaut, to 15th century French and Spanish dance music and English lute songs by Henry VIII and John Dowland. All performed on a large variety of mediaeval instruments including the lute, harp, fiddle, bagpipes and gittern.
Pastance came together in 1993 to perform Mediaeval and Renaissance music. Pastance has performed for the early music fraternity but also for a wide range of audiences, from folk festivals and formal concerts to schools, corporate feasts and open air markets.
“... one of the most delightful (discs) I have ever heard ... This is one CD which is worth whatever it costs.”
— Society of Recorder Players SA
“The voices combine beautifully and provide such expression, clarity and contrasts of sounds ... I would recommend adding Pastance to your collection.”
— The Australian Recorder Federation
