But who are the Mediaeval Baebes and what has made their haunting vocal harmonies become so renowned across the globe? Over 25 years ago, a group of friends clad in flowing white gowns and crowns of ivy broke into a graveyard to sing mediæval songs and make merry. More than a quarter of a century later, the Mediaeval Baebes have released 11 studio albums and won an Ivor Novella Award for their performance on the BBC serialization ‘The Virgin Queen.’ They have also had 2 Emmy nominations, and have received a Royal Television Society award alongside composer Martin Phipps, for their soundtrack to ITV’s hit period drama ‘Victoria.
’They are one the most successful, female-led, early music and folk ensembles in Europe and have toured with Jules Holland, supported Michael Flatley in Hyde Park, and performed at The Game of Thrones Festival in Canada. They have appeared as joint guests on a show with Meatloaf and, as a fan and enthusiast, Iggy Pop regularly plays their music in his shows and invited them to perform live for his Radio 6 Christmas Day special. Katharine Blake, musical director, composer and producer for the Mediaeval Baebes explained why the Tour is so special. “Our music really comes alive when we sing in churches and cathedrals because it was designed to be sung there. The show is a vibrant performance that will be moving, amusing, rousing and spell-binding.
”The Mediaeval Baebes are always accompanied by a dazzling array of exotic and period instruments. The listener is transported through a myriad of ancient and forgotten languages as dance, theatre and ethereal harmonies weave story-telling magic through original settings of mediaeval texts, traditional folk songs, nursery rhymes and Christmas carols.
