Voices Appeared is a live multimedia performance and historical reconstruction of Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1928 film La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc. Curated and performed by the UK’s celebrated Orlando Consort, the project uses vocal works from the early part of the 15th century — coinciding with Joan of Arc’s lifetime — to accompany the classic silent film. Cited as “simultaneously ravishing and reverential” by the Los Angeles Times and “enthralling” by The London Evening Standard, the Orlando Consort is one of Europe’s most expert groups performing early music, successfully combining captivating entertainment with fresh scholarly insight. The unique imagination and originality of their programming, together with their superb vocal skills, establishes the Consort as outstanding leaders of their field.

 

“This is an exceptional achievement that reminds us just how potent the combination of silent film and live music can be.”
— THE GUARDIAN
