Our new programme tells the story about a very special day when the canons of Winchester Cathedral were expelled by the bishop Aethelwold, and replaced by monks from Abingdon. Intrigued by these powerful spirits and their books, stories and songs, we created a programme two voices and two instruments around this violent meeting between canons and monks, between insiders and outsiders, finally between us today and the others, those men who lived a thousand years ago.

This programme will be premiered at the festival Laus Polyphoniae in Antwerp on August 23, 2018.
